Actually this shifting is conceptually not right and should be mirrored
with PRESTERA_DSA_DEV_NUM genmask from prestera_dsa_parse(), so instead I
did this:

...
u32 dev_num = dsa->hw_dev_num;
...
dev_num = FIELD_GET(PRESTERA_DSA_DEV_NUM, dev_num);
words[3] |= FIELD_PREP(PRESTERA_DSA_W3_DEV_NUM, dev_num);
...

I came up with the following approach which works:

-------------->8------------------------------------------------
tail = &ring->bufs[bnum - 1];
head = &ring->bufs[0];
next = head;
prev = next;
ring->next_rx = 0;

do {
	err = prestera_sdma_buf_init(sdma, next);
	if (err)
		return err;

	err = prestera_sdma_rx_skb_alloc(sdma, next);
	if (err)
		return err;

	prestera_sdma_rx_desc_init(sdma, next->desc, next->buf_dma);

	prestera_sdma_rx_desc_set_next(sdma, prev->desc, next->desc_dma);

	prev = next;
	next++;
} while (prev != tail);

/* make a circular list */
prestera_sdma_rx_desc_set_next(sdma, tail->desc, head->desc_dma);
--------------8<------------------------------------------------

Now it looks more list-oriented cyclic logic.
