Yes, you are right. So, if we need to modify the function type , this 
patch need to be drop.

And I will send a new patch later to redefine get_rx_header_len() to 
void and delete ret there.


Please check "net: stmmac: set get_rx_header_len() as void for it didn't 
have any error code to return" later.


Thanks

Jiaxing
