Subject[ 63/72] davinci_emac: Do not free all rx dma descriptors during init
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christian Riesch <christian.riesch@omicron.at>

commit 5d69703263d588dbb03f4e57091afd8942d96e6d upstream.

This patch fixes a regression that was introduced by

commit 0a5f38467765ee15478db90d81e40c269c8dda20
davinci_emac: Add Carrier Link OK check in Davinci RX Handler

Said commit adds a check whether the carrier link is ok. If the link is
not ok, the skb is freed and no new dma descriptor added to the rx dma
channel. This causes trouble during initialization when the carrier
status has not yet been updated. If a lot of packets are received while
netif_carrier_ok returns false, all dma descriptors are freed and the
rx dma transfer is stopped.

The bug occurs when the board is connected to a network with lots of
traffic and the ifconfig down/up is done, e.g., when reconfiguring
the interface with DHCP.

The bug can be reproduced by flood pinging the davinci board while doing
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
on the board.

After that, the rx path stops working and the overrun value reported
by ifconfig is counting up.

This patch reverts commit 0a5f38467765ee15478db90d81e40c269c8dda20
and instead issues warnings only if cpdma_chan_submit returns -ENOMEM.
