Subject: [PATCH net-next v3 2/4] net: mvneta: avoid getting buf_phys_addr from rx_desc again

In hot code path mvneta_rx_hwbm(), the rx_desc->buf_phys_addr is read
four times. 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. So reuse the read out phys_addr variable to
avoid the extra reading from uncached memory.
