This commit is incomplete and we need the following commit:

commit f87db4dbd52f2f8a170a2b51cb0926221ca7c9e2

    net: stmmac: Use bfsize1 in ndesc_init_rx_desc

    gcc warn this:

    drivers/net/ethernet/stmicro/stmmac/norm_desc.c: In function ndesc_init_rx_desc:
    drivers/net/ethernet/stmicro/stmmac/norm_desc.c:138:6: warning: variable 'bfsize1' set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]

    Like enh_desc_init_rx_desc, we should use bfsize1
    in ndesc_init_rx_desc to calculate 'p->des1'

And this fix is also needed for 5.0.14-rc.
Please apply this commit to 4.19.y-rc and 5.0.y-rc.
