The caller of gmac_map_tx_bufs() is a but funky:

	if (gmac_map_tx_bufs(netdev, skb, txq, &w)) {
		if (skb_linearize(skb))
			goto out_drop;

		u64_stats_update_begin(&port->tx_stats_syncp);
		port->tx_frags_linearized++;
		u64_stats_update_end(&port->tx_stats_syncp);

		if (gmac_map_tx_bufs(netdev, skb, txq, &w))
			goto out_drop_free;
	}

So return -EINVAL is going to cause the skb to be linearised, and then
re-tried. Maybe you want to check the error code here, and go straight
to out_drop?
