Subject: [PATCH net-next v3 1/2] net: ethernet: mediatek: enhance RX path by reducing the frequency of the memory barrier used

The patch makes moving wmb() to outside the loop that could help
RX path handling more faster although that RX descriptors aren't
freed for DMA to use as soon as possible, but based on my experiment
and the result shows it still can reach about 943Mbpis without
performance drop that is tested based on the setup with one port
using Giga PHY and 256 RX descriptors for DMA to move.
