Subject: [PATCH] net: ethernet: cpsw: fix hangs with interrupts

The CPSW IP implements pulse-signaled interrupts. Due to
that we must write a correct, pre-defined value to the
CPDMA_MACEOIVECTOR register so the controller generates
a pulse on the correct IRQ line to signal the End Of
Interrupt.

The way the driver is written today, all four IRQ lines
are requested using the same IRQ handler and, because of
that, we could fall into situations where a TX IRQ fires
but we tell the controller that we ended an RX IRQ (or
vice-versa). This situation triggers an IRQ storm on the
reserved IRQ 127 of INTC which will in turn call ack_bad_irq()
which will, then, print a ton of:

	unexpected IRQ trap at vector 00

In order to fix the problem, we are moving all calls to
cpdma_ctlr_eoi() inside the IRQ handler and making sure
we *always* write the correct value to the CPDMA_MACEOIVECTOR
register. Note that the algorithm assumes that IRQ numbers and
value-to-be-written-to-EOI are proportional, meaning that a
write of value 0 would trigger an EOI pulse for the RX_THRESHOLD
Interrupt and that's the IRQ number sitting in the 0-th index
of our irqs_table array.

This, however, is safe at least for current implementations of
CPSW so we will refrain from making the check smarter (and, as
a side-effect, slower) until we actually have a platform where
IRQ lines are swapped.

This patch has been tested for several days with AM335x- and
AM437x-based platforms. AM57x was left out because there are
still pending patches to enable ethernet in mainline for that
platform. A read of the TRM confirms the statement on previous
paragraph.
