at91_eth_priv structure is contains only RX buffers, RX buffer descriptors 
and "TX buffer descriptors". No contains "TX buffers".

at91_eth_send() shows " priv->tbd[priv->curr_tbd_idx].addr = sg_list[i].buf; 
" - no memory copy, only address assigment.
But, sg_list[] it is mbuf, dynamically allocated in TCP/IP stack.

Present at91_eth driver is don't use static TX buffers.
