lwIP copy tx vs DMA

In file nifce_driver.c  function: low_level_output(struct netif* netif, struct pbuf* p) For the Blackfin,

The pbufs from lwip are copied into a TX buffer then sent to the Ethernet driver.  Is there a way to just loan the pb_bufs to the driver?  This would help in cases where sending a lot of traffic, instead of copying using the process, allow driver to use the buffer directly.
