Subject[PATCH] net: ftgmac100: Fix missing TX-poll issue
The cpu accesses the register and the memory via different bus/path on
aspeed soc. So we can not guarantee that the tx-poll command
(register access) is always behind the tx descriptor (memory). In other
words, the HW may start working even the data is not yet ready. By
adding a dummy read after the last data write, we can ensure the data
are pushed to the memory, then guarantee the processing sequence
