Subject: [PATCH v5 1/2] net: moxa: clear TX descriptor length bits

TX buffer length is not cleared on ndo_start_xmit().
Failing to do so can bug/hang the controller and
cause TX interrupts to stop altogether.

Add TX_DESC1_BUF_SIZE_MASK to bits that are cleared,
before the TX buffer length is set.
