I have tried this change, but it made the situation worse on dwmac-sunxi (no network at all).

Joao, perhaps it's time to revert the faulty (and very huge) patch and rework it by splitting at least in two:
- adding RX queue / adding TX queue
And more if possible (like just adding an unused queue parameter) or a patch just for adding stmmac_free_tx_buffers() for example.
I think it will help to find where the problem is.

And this time I will test them before applying:)
