Subject: [PATCH 1/5] net: MOXA ART: clear TX descriptor length bits between sends

Add TX_DESC1_BUF_SIZE_MASK to bits that are cleared, before the TX buffer
length is set. Failing to do so can cause the controller to drop dead
i.e. all TX interrupts stop, resulting in complete communication failure.
