In that case it's probably best to stop the Tx queue in the xmit routine
once all the lots are used, and restart it from the interrupt. I was
guessing maybe the IRQ is not always there, but that doesn't seem to be
the case.

Either that or allocate a small array (num_tx_slots) to save the
lengths for IRQ routine to use.
