Subject: [PATCH] net: vmxnet3: avoid accessing the data mapped to streaming DMA

In vmxnet3_probe_device(), "adapter" is mapped to streaming DMA:
  adapter->adapter_pa = dma_map_single(..., adapter, ...);

Then "adapter" is accessed at many places in this function.

Theses accesses may cause data inconsistency between CPU cache and 
hardware.

To fix this problem, dma_map_single() is called after these accesses.
