Hi Nicolas,

I think I found the cause of the issue I told you about. Looks like
driver and HW are racing (a few more details in the commit message).
On my way finding that, I found a few more minor issues which are fixed
in the first patches.
The last one is "fixing" the actual race. I don't know if I overlooked
anything here, but this seems to work fine on Zynq.


Soren Brinkmann (5):
  net: macb: Pass same size to DMA_UNMAP as used for DMA_MAP
  net: macb: Clear interrupt flags
  net: macb: Re-enable RX interrupt only when RX is done
  net: macb: Remove 'unlikely' optimization
  net: macb: Fix race between HW and driver
