Subject: [PATCH net v2 0/4] r8152: fix scheduling napi

Add smp_mb__after_atomic() for patch #1.

Scheduling the napi during the following periods would let it be ignored.
And the events wouldn't be handled until next napi_schedule() is called.

1. after napi_disable and before napi_enable().
2. after all actions of napi function is completed and before calling

If no next napi_schedule() is called, tx or rx would stop working.

In order to avoid these situations, the followings solutions are applied.

1. prevent start_xmit() from calling napi_schedule() during runtime suspend
   or after napi_disable().
2. re-schedule the napi for tx if it is necessary.
3. check if any rx is finished or not after napi_enable().

Hayes Wang (4):
  r8152: avoid start_xmit to call napi_schedule during autosuspend
  r8152: avoid start_xmit to schedule napi when napi is disabled
  r8152: re-schedule napi for tx
  r8152: check rx after napi is enabled
