Is there an agreed upon standard for exactly what ethernet drivers
should be counting for rx-bytes and tx-bytes?  For example, should the
counters include the 4-byte FCS?  Should they include the ethernet header?

From what I can tell, various drivers count the rx and tx bytes differently,
which cannot be correct....
