+Vector RX Pre-conditions
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+For Vector RX it is assumed that the number of descriptor rings will be a power
+of 2. With this pre-condition, the ring pointer can easily scroll back to the
+head after hitting the tail without a conditional check. In addition Vector RX
+can use this assumption to do a bit mask using ``ring_size - 1``.
