Subject: [PATCH net-next RESEND] net: bcmgenet: hide status block before TX timestamping

The hardware checksum offloading requires use of a transmit
status block inserted before the outgoing frame data, this was
updated in '9a9ba2a4aaaa ("net: bcmgenet: always enable status blocks")'

However, skb_tx_timestamp() assumes that it is passed a raw frame
and PTP parsing chokes on this status block.

Fix this by calling __skb_pull(), which hides the TSB before calling
skb_tx_timestamp(), so an outgoing PTP packet is parsed correctly.

As the data in the skb has already been set up for DMA, and the
dma_unmap_* calls use a separately stored address, there is no
no effective change in the data transmission.
