Andrew,

Indeed this does resolve the issue. I see a burst of FIFO overruns
initially when receiving an iperf bandwidth test but that would be
caused by the IMX6 errata and should be mitigated via pause frames.
After that short burst I see no other errors and iperf works fine.

Should we get this patch in the linux-stable tree for the 4.9 kernel?

Thanks!

Tim
