Subject[PATCH 3.5 40/64] net: mv643xx_eth: update statistics timer from timer context only
Date
3.5.7.24 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sebastian Hesselbarth <sebastian.hesselbarth@gmail.com>

commit 041b4ddb84989f06ff1df0ca869b950f1ee3cb1c upstream.

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.
