Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 35/67] net: ll_temac: Fix race condition causing TX hang

From: Esben Haabendal <esben@...nix.com>

[ Upstream commit 84823ff80f7403752b59e00bb198724100dc611c ]

It is possible that the interrupt handler fires and frees up space in
the TX ring in between checking for sufficient TX ring space and
stopping the TX queue in temac_start_xmit. If this happens, the
queue wake from the interrupt handler will occur before the queue is
stopped, causing a lost wakeup and the adapter's transmit hanging.

To avoid this, after stopping the queue, check again whether there is
sufficient space in the TX ring. If so, wake up the queue again.

This is a port of the similar fix in axienet driver,
commit 7de44285c1f6 ("net: axienet: Fix race condition causing TX hang").

Fixes: 23ecc4bde21f ("net: ll_temac: fix checksum offload logic")
