[PATCH 4.14 043/105] net: macb: fix random memory corruption on RX with 64-bit DMA




4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit e100a897bf9b19089e57f236f2398c9e0538900e ]

64-bit DMA addresses are split in upper and lower halves that are
written in separate fields on GEM. For RX, bit 0 of the address is used
as the ownership bit (RX_USED). When the RX_USED bit is unset the
controller is allowed to write data to the buffer.

The driver does not guarantee that the controller already sees the upper
half when the RX_USED bit is cleared, possibly resulting in the
controller writing an incoming frame to an address with an incorrect
upper half and therefore possibly corrupting unrelated system memory.

Fix that by adding the necessary DMA memory barrier between the writes.

This corruption was observed on a ZynqMP based system.
