This description is not sufficient.

I don't understand what non fixed burst mode means, and why
it is so critical to add support for it in 'net' which is
only for bug fixes.

I also do not understand what the "mtl and dma channel" feature is,
what was wrong with it, and what exactly patch #3 is doing to fix it.

Finally, I have no idea why the tail pointer update is necessary
and what problem it is fixing.

You have several things to address in this patch series before I
can apply it.

Furthermore, you have to make it clear what tree you intend these
changes to go into.  'net' is only for bug fixes, and 'net-next'
is for cleanups and new features.

Thank you.
