Ethernet Drivers: Question on Sending Received Packets to the
FreeBSD Network Stack

While sending the Received Ethernet Frames (non - LRO case) to the FreeBSD Network Stack via
(struct ifnet *)->if_input((struct ifnet *), (struct *mbuf));
Is it possible to send multiple Ethernet Frames in a single invocation of the above callback function?
In other words should (struct *mbuf) above always correspond to a single Ethernet Frame? I am not sure if I missed something, but I gathered from a quick perusal of ether_input() in net/if_ethersubr.c, that only ONE Ethernet Frame may be sent per callback.
