Subject: [PATCH 3.15 12/26] bna: fix performance regression

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

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

From: Ivan Vecera <ivecera@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit c36c9d50cc6af5c5bfcc195f21b73f55520c15f9 ]

The recent commit "e29aa33 bna: Enable Multi Buffer RX" is causing
a performance regression. It does not properly update 'cmpl' pointer
at the end of the loop in NAPI handler bnad_cq_process(). The result is
only one packet / per NAPI-schedule is processed.
