Subject: [PATCH v3] net: stmmac: fix a possible endless loop

It forgot to reduce the value of the variable retry in a while loop
in the ethqos_configure() function. It may cause an endless loop and
without timeout.

Fixes: a7c30e62d4b8 ("net: stmmac: Add driver for Qualcomm ethqos")

Hi David, I'm so sorry for that.

remove an empty line between Fixes and other tags.

add an appropriate Fixes tag.
