Subject: [PATCH net-next v3 4/4] net: mvneta: Use cacheable memory to store the rx buffer DMA address

In hot code path such as mvneta_rx_swbm(), the buf_phys_addr field of
rx_dec is accessed. The rx_desc is allocated by dma_alloc_coherent,
it's uncacheable if the device isn't cache coherent, reading from
uncached memory is fairly slow. This patch uses cacheable memory to
store the rx buffer DMA address. We get the following performance data
on Marvell BG4CT Platforms (tested with iperf):

before the patch:
recving 1GB in mvneta_rx_swbm() costs 1492659600 ns

after the patch:
recving 1GB in mvneta_rx_swbm() costs 1421565640 ns

We saved 4.76% time.
