Subject[patch 10/23] bcm43xx: Drain TX status before starting IRQs
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Michael Buesch <mb@bu3sch.de>

Drain the Microcode TX-status-FIFO before we enable IRQs.
This is required, because the FIFO may still have entries left
from a previous run. Those would immediately fire after enabling
IRQs and would lead to an oops in the DMA TXstatus handling code.
