This patch implements a ring dump to dmesg that is
printed just before reset due to NETDEV_WATCHDOG. It
can help identify what exactly the state of the ring is
when the failure occurred. Be careful, the dump is
sizeable and based on how many descriptors you have.
Its likely that you will have to increase your kernel
ring buffer size to contain the whole thing. Another
option is to decrease the descriptor count.
