Yes, will remove this.

If it isn't called it means skb_xmit_done() wakeup tx directly instead
of schedule tx. This could be a little bit early since there may be
still lots of pending tx packets. But it doesn't harm, start_xmit() can
handle this by re enable a delayed tx interrupt and disable TX.

But there's a bug, look like I need remove the check of
(!sq->napi.weight) in the beginning of the function.

Yes.
