Hello Kelvin

attached the patch tested on my development kernel.
It runs fine on old and new mac devices.

Can you try it on your side? Hmm, it is likely it won't apply fine on
your tree but you know the changes ;-).

If ok, I'll rework it for net-next and send it to the mailing list.

Thanks

Patch

From 85da9c92eace0b56148e9eedad1061ed72271409 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Giuseppe Cavallaro <peppe.cavallaro@st.com>
Date: Tue, 25 Oct 2011 09:46:41 +0200
Subject: [PATCH (sh-2.6.32.y) 2/2] stmmac: update normal descriptor structure

This patch updates the normal descriptor structure
to work fine on new GMAC Synopsys chips.

Normal descriptors were designed on the old MAC10/100
databook 1.91 where some bits were reserved: for example
the tx checksum insertion.

The patch maintains the back-compatibility with old
MAC devices (tested on STx7109 MAC10/100) and adds new
fields that actually new GMAC devices can use.

For example, STx7109 will pass from the platform
tx_coe = 0, enh_desc = 0, has_gmac = 0.
A platform like Loongson1B (Mips) will pass:
tx_coe = 1, enh_desc = 0, has_gmac = 1.

Thanks to Kelvin, he enhanced the normal descriptors for
GMAC on Loongson1B.
