3.5.7.8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>

commit 3412f2f086ea7531378fabe756bd4a1109994ae6 upstream.

On many different chips, important aspects of the MAC state are not
fully cleared by a warm reset. This can show up as tx/rx hangs, those
annoying "DMA failed to stop in 10 ms..." messages or other quirks.

On AR933x, the chip can occasionally get stuck in a way that only a
driver unload/reload or a reboot would bring it back to life.

With this patch, a full reset is issued when bringing the chip out of
FULL-SLEEP state (after idle), or if either Rx or Tx was not shut down
properly. This makes the DMA related error messages disappear completely
in my tests on AR933x, and the chip does not get stuck anymore.
