I test this patch, we don't need to reset the FIFO, and regcache_sync didn't
Write the ETDR even the EDTR is not volatile.  This fault maybe caused by
Legacy, in the beginning we add this patch in internal branch, there maybe
Something cause this issue, but now can't reproduced. 

So I will remove the reset of FIFO.
