Subject: PATCH: b44 Handle RX FIFO overflow better (simplified)

This patch is a simplified version of the original patch from James Courtier-Dutton.

>From: James Courtier-Dutton
>Subject: [PATCH] Fix b44 RX FIFO overflow recovery.
>Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2010 - 1:11 pm

>This patch improves the recovery after a RX FIFO overflow on the b44
>Ethernet NIC.
>Before it would do a complete chip reset, resulting is loss of link
>for a few seconds.
>This patch improves this to do recovery in about 20ms without loss of link.
