Thank you for your comment!

This doesn't solve a bug observed by me. But I think this should be
necessary considering the logic of the code.

Using "grep", I found that there were indeed Ethernet drivers that set
needed_tailroom. I found it was set in these files:
Setting needed_tailroom may be necessary for this driver to run those
Ethernet devices.
