Subject[PATCH 4.4 12/32] net: alx: Work around the DMA RX overflow issue
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Feng Tang <feng.tang@intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 881d0327db37ad917a367c77aff1afa1ee41e0a9 ]

Note: This is a verified backported patch for stable 4.4 kernel, and it
could also be applied to 4.3/4.2/4.1/3.18/3.16

There is a problem with alx devices, that the network link will be
lost in 1-5 minutes after the device is up.

>From debugging without datasheet, we found the error always
happen when the DMA RX address is set to 0x....fc0, which is very
likely to be a HW/silicon problem.

This patch will apply rx skb with 64 bytes longer space, and if the
allocated skb has a 0x...fc0 address, it will use skb_resever(skb, 64)
to advance the address, so that the RX overflow can be avoided.
