Subject: [PATCHv2 01/10] net: eth: altera: tse_start_xmit ignores tx_buffer call response

From: Dalon Westergreen <dalon.westergreen@...el.com>

The return from tx_buffer call in tse_start_xmit is
inapropriately ignored.  tse_buffer calls should return
0 for success or NETDEV_TX_BUSY.  tse_start_xmit should
return not report a successful transmit when the tse_buffer
call returns an error condition.

In addition to the above, the msgdma and sgdma do not return
the same value on success or failure.  The sgdma_tx_buffer
returned 0 on failure and a positive number of transmitted
packets on success.  Given that it only ever sends 1 packet,
this made no sense.  The msgdma implementation msgdma_tx_buffer
returns 0 on success.

  -> Don't ignore the return from tse_buffer calls
  -> Fix sgdma tse_buffer call to return 0 on success
     and NETDEV_TX_BUSY on failure.
