Subject: [net-next 10/14] e1000e: fix cyclic resets at link up with active tx

From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@...dex-team.ru>

I'm seeing series of e1000e resets (sometimes endless) at system boot
if something generates tx traffic at this time. In my case this is
netconsole who sends message "e1000e 0000:02:00.0: Some CPU C-states
have been disabled in order to enable jumbo frames" from e1000e itself.
As result e1000_watchdog_task sees used tx buffer while carrier is off
and start this reset cycle again.

This patch flushes tx buffers only once when carrier is off
rather than at each watchdog iteration.
