Use poll to reclaim xmitted buffer as workaround since no tx done interrupt 

Remove select NET_CORE in 0002

Suggest by Russell: Use netdev_sent_queue & netdev_completed_queue to solve latency issue 
Also shorten the period of timer, which is used to wakeup the queue since no
tx completed interrupt.

no big change, fix typo

Modify accoringly to the suggetion from Arnd, Florian, Eric, David
Use of_parse_phandle_with_fixed_args & syscon_node_to_regmap get ppe info
Add skb_orphan() and tx_timer for reclaim since no tx_finished interrupt
Update timeout, and move of_phy_connect to probe to reuse open/stop

Suggest from Arnd, use syscon & regmap_write/read to replace static void __iomem *ppebase.
Modify hisilicon-hip04-net.txt accrordingly to suggestion from Florian and Sergei.

Got many suggestions from Russell, Arnd, Florian, Mark and Sergei
Remove memcpy, use dma_map/unmap_single, use dma_alloc_coherent rather than dma_pool, etc.
Refer property in ethernet.txt, change ppe description, etc.
