Makes sense.

Fixes: ef11291bcd5f ("Add support the Korina (IDT RC32434) Ethernet MAC")

Slightly off-topic, but I don't fully fathom what goes on with this

        lp->td_ring = (struct dma_desc *)KSEG1ADDR(lp->td_ring);

In general it is nice to release in reverse of acquire. But the driver
already does not follow this practice.
