Subject: [PATCH 3/3 v2] net/macb: Try to optimize struct macb layout

From: Havard Skinnemoen <>

Move TX-related fields to the top of the struct so that they end up on
the same cache line. Move the NAPI struct below that since it is used
from the interrupt handler. RX-related fields go below those.

Move the spinlock before regs since they are usually used together.
