Subject[PATCH 1/3] net: mv643xx_eth: update statistics timer from timer context only
Date
Each port driver installs a periodic timer to update port statistics
by calling mib_counters_update. As mib_counters_update is also called
from non-timer context, we should not reschedule the timer there but
rather move it to timer-only context.
