Subject: [PATCH] solos-pci: Fix DMA support

DMA support has finally made its way to the top of the TODO list, having
realised that a Geode using MMIO can't keep up with two ADSL2+ lines
each running at 21Mb/s.

This patch fixes a couple of bugs in the DMA support in the driver, so
once the corresponding FPGA update is complete and tested everything
should work properly.

We weren't storing the currently-transmitting skb, so we were never
unmapping it and never freeing/popping it when the TX was done.
And the addition of pci_set_master() is fairly self-explanatory.

(Strictly speaking, it *can* keep up using MMIO. But only if you use MMX
loads/stores to do 64-bit PCI transactions instead of the 32-bit
transactions you get with memcpy_{to,from}io(). But we're not showing
you that code. Some of you might know where we live.)
