Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 2/8] ethernet: ucc_geth: fix definition and size of ucc_geth_tx_global_pram

From: Rasmus Villemoes <rasmus.villemoes@...vas.dk>

[ Upstream commit 887078de2a23689e29d6fa1b75d7cbc544c280be ]

Table 8-53 in the QUICC Engine Reference manual shows definitions of
fields up to a size of 192 bytes, not just 128. But in table 8-111,
one does find the text

  Base Address of the Global Transmitter Parameter RAM Page. [...]
  The user needs to allocate 128 bytes for this page. The address must
  be aligned to the page size.

I've checked both rev. 7 (11/2015) and rev. 9 (05/2018) of the manual;
they both have this inconsistency (and the table numbers are the
same).

Adding a bit of debug printing, on my board the struct
ucc_geth_tx_global_pram is allocated at offset 0x880, while
the (opaque) ucc_geth_thread_data_tx gets allocated immediately
afterwards, at 0x900. So whatever the engine writes into the thread
data overlaps with the tail of the global tx pram (and devmem says
that something does get written during a simple ping).

I haven't observed any failure that could be attributed to this, but
it seems to be the kind of thing that would be extremely hard to
debug. So extend the struct definition so that we do allocate 192
bytes.
