Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] net: stmmac: fix jumbo frame sending with non-linear skbs

From: Aaro Koskinen <aaro.koskinen@...ia.com>

When sending non-linear skbs with jumbo frames, we set up the non-paged
data and mark that as a last segment, although the paged fragments are
also prepared. This will stall the TX queue and trigger a watchdog warning
(a simple reproducer is to run an iperf client mode TCP test with a large
MTU - networking fails instantly).

Fix by checking if the skb is non-linear.
