Subject: [PATCH 4/15] spidernet: silence the ramfull messages


Although the previous patch resolved issues with hangs when the
RX ram full interrupt is encountered, there are still situations
where lots of RX ramfull interrupts arrive, resulting in a noisy
log in syslog. There is no need for this.
