Subject: [PATCH 03/11] netdev: bfin_mac: invalid data cache only once for each new rx skb buffer

From: Sonic Zhang <sonic.zhang@...log.com>

The skb buffer isn't actually used until we finish transferring and pass
it up to higher layers, so only invalidate the range once before we start
receiving actual data.  This also avoids the problem with data invalidating
on Blackfin systems -- there is no invalidate-only, just invalidate+flush.
So when running in writeback mode, there is the small (but not uncommon)
possibility of the flush overwriting valid DMA-ed data from the cache.
