Subject: [PATCH 13/17] net: stmmac: Implement NAPI for TX

The stmmac driver run TX completion under NAPI but without checking the
work done by the TX completion function.

This patch add work/budget to the TX completion function.

The visible effect is that it keep the driver longer under NAPI and
boost performance.
Under dwmac-sun8i the iperf goes from 140Mbit/s to 500Mbit/s.
Under dwmac-sunxi an iperf run use half less interrupts.
