[Ethernet Driver Porting API]

void vNetworkBufferRelease( xNetworkBufferDescriptor_t * const pxNetworkBuffer );

Returns to the IP stack a network buffer descriptor that was previously obtained from the IP stack by a call to pxNetworkBufferGet().

If the network buffer descriptor references an Ethernet buffer then the Ethernet buffer is also returned.

pxNetworkBufferGet() must not be called from an interrupt service routine (ISR).


pxNetworkBuffer   A pointer to the network buffer descriptor being released (returned to the IP stack).
