On some platforms (currently detected only on SAMA5D4) TX might stuck
even the pachets are still present in DMA memories and TX start was
issued for them. This happens due to race condition between MACB driver
updating next TX buffer descriptor to be used and IP reading the same
descriptor. In such a case, the "TX USED BIT READ" interrupt is asserted.
GEM/MACB user guide specifies that if a "TX USED BIT READ" interrupt
is asserted TX must be restarted. Restart TX if used bit is read and
packets are present in software TX queue. Packets are removed from software
TX queue if TX was successful for them (see macb_tx_interrupt()).

Hi David,

Please ignore this one for the moment, I'll have to run few more tests on it.

Thank you,
Claudiu Beznea
