SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/cadence/macb: clear interrupts simply and correctly

Does this interrupt need to be enabled? There is nothing checking
that bit and handling this IRQ in the handler, AFAICT. And you solve
this by simply clearing the bit. So, I wonder whether not enabling this
IRQ in the first place would solve things too.

This is now clearing all IRQ flags which is probably not what we want
here. This is handling RX only. We still want the non-RX interrupts to go to
the actual interrupt service routing.
