It's not the most pleasant alternative but if you can be sure enough
whether the problem is occurring or not, you could try bisecting,
possibly limiting the bisection to mv643xx

$ git bisect start v3.16.3 v3.10 -- drivers/net/ethernet/marvell/mv643xx_eth.c
Bisecting: 16 revisions left to test after this (roughly 4 steps)

The problem might be outside of the driver though.
