Amir Vadai - Jan. 31, 2013, 9:07 a.m.
Under heavy CPU load, changing, ring size/mtu/etc. could result in transmit
timeout, since stop-start port might take more than 10 seconds.
Calling netif_detach_device to prevent tx queue transmit timeout.

netif_detach_device() is not called under ndo_stop, because netif_carrier_off
will prevent the timeout, and device should not be marked as not present, or
else user won't be able to start it later on.
