Subject: [PATCH/RFC] net: ethernet: ravb: Try to wake subqueue instead of stop on timeout

According to the report of [1], this driver is possible to cause
the following error in ravb_tx_timeout_work().

ravb e6800000.ethernet ethernet: failed to switch device to config mode

This error means that the hardware could not change the state
from "Operation" to "Configuration" while some tx queue is operating.
After that, ravb_config() in ravb_dmac_init() will fail, and then
any descriptors will be not allocaled anymore so that NULL porinter
dereference happens after that on ravb_start_xmit().

Such a case is possible to be caused because this driver supports
two queues (NC and BE) and the ravb_stop_dma() is possible to return
without any stopping process if TCCR or CSR register indicates
the hardware is operating for TX.

To fix the issue, just try to wake the subqueue on
ravb_tx_timeout_work() if the descriptors are not full instead
of stop all transfers (all queues of TX and RX).

 I'm guessing that this issue is possible to happen if:
 - ravb_start_xmit() calls netif_stop_subqueue(), and
 - ravb_poll() will not be called with some reason, and
 - netif_wake_subqueue() will be not called, and then
 - dev_watchdog() in net/sched/sch_generic.c calls ndo_tx_timeout().

 However, unfortunately, I didn't reproduce the issue yet.
 To be honest, I'm also guessing other queues (SR) of this hardware
 which out-of tree driver manages are possible to reproduce this issue,
 but I didn't try such environment for now...

 So, I marked RFC on this patch now.
