I think this leaves a race condition, as far as I can tell
tasklet_kill() just kills the currently scheduled tasklet,
but doesn't prevent it from being scheduled again. If the
interrupt fires just after the tasklet_kill() call the tasklet
will be scheduled back in. I think you'd need to mask the interrupt
(through the IDR register?) or just put the tasklet_kill() call after
unregister_netdev(), because AFAICT closing the netdev disables all
irqs.
