I think this could qualify as a pretty significant fix in its own right,
that should go to stable trees. Right now, this patch appears pretty
easy to overlook.

Is this the same situation as what is being described here for the
gianfar driver?

If so, it is interesting because I thought we had agreed that it's only
DSA who suffers from the double-TX-timestamp design issue, not PHYTER.
Not to mention, interesting because FEC + a timestamping DSA switch such
as mv88e6xxx is not unheard of. Hmmm...
