Subject[PATCH 4.14 458/496] net: stmmac: ensure that the device has released ownership before reading data
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Niklas Cassel <niklas.cassel@axis.com>

[ Upstream commit a6b25da5e7ba212af5826a662e6a035a79bffabd ]

According to Documentation/memory-barriers.txt, we need to use a
dma_rmb() after reading the status/own bit, to ensure that all
descriptor fields are read after reading the own bit.

This way, we ensure that the DMA engine is done with the DMA
descriptor before we read the other descriptor fields, e.g. reading
the tx hardware timestamp (if PTP is enabled).
