Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 2/2] net: systemport: pad packets to a minimum of 64 bytes

The switch fabric which is used behind the Broadcom SYSTEMPORT Ethernet
controller will discard any incoming packet that is not 64 bytes or
more. Since the UniMAC hardware automatically pads up to the specified
length, we can simply ensure we instruct it to transmit >= 64 bytes
packets.

Signed-off-by: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli@...il.com>

Changes in v2:
- use skb_padto() to avoid leaking packet contents
