 When one or more packets are received, an interrupt happens. The interrupts
 are not queued so the driver has to scan all the descriptors in the ring during
 the receive process.

 Then the poll method will be scheduled at some future point.
 The incoming packets are stored, by the DMA, in a list of pre-allocated socket
 buffers in order to avoid the memcpy (Zero-copy).
 
 4.3) Timer-Driver Interrupt
-Instead of having the device that asynchronously notifies the frame receptions, the
-driver configures a timer to generate an interrupt at regular intervals.
-Based on the granularity of the timer, the frames that are received by the device
