[tulip] Tx stats invalid if Tx intr on completion not set?

What happens if all transmit descriptors currently queued for the 21143
don't have the TDES1<31> bit set for interrupt on completion?

The HRM seems to indicate that in that case CSR5 won't have TxIntr set.
Then, how does the tulip driver know about completion of these
transmitted frames? i.e. how does it update tx_packets and tx_bytes
