[BUG] net: stmmac: dwmac-sun8i broken in linux-next




Hello

The dwmac-sun8i driver is broken in next-20180515, symptom are no RX and TX errors as shown by ifconfig:
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.1.204  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.1.255
        ether 96:75:ff:0d:f6:d8  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 0  bytes 4956 (4.8 KiB)
        TX errors 118  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

Reverting the following commit made the driver working:
4dbbe8dde8485b89bce8bbbe7564337fd7eed69f ("net: stmmac: Add support for U32 TC filter using Flexible RX Parser")
5f0456b43140af9413397cc11d03d18b9f2fc2fc ("net: stmmac: Implement logic to automatically select HW Interface")

Note that reverting only 4dbbe8dde8485b89bce8bbbe7564337fd7eed69f lead to crash:
