Subject[PATCH 4.9 042/109] net: systemport: Pad packet before inserting TSB
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@gmail.com>


[ Upstream commit 38e5a85562a6cd911fc26d951d576551a688574c ]

Inserting the TSB means adding an extra 8 bytes in front the of packet
that is going to be used as metadata information by the TDMA engine, but
stripped off, so it does not really help with the packet padding.

For some odd packet sizes that fall below the 60 bytes payload (e.g: ARP)
we can end-up padding them after the TSB insertion, thus making them 64
bytes, but with the TDMA stripping off the first 8 bytes, they could
still be smaller than 64 bytes which is required to ingress the switch.

Fix this by swapping the padding and TSB insertion, guaranteeing that
the packets have the right sizes.
