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

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

From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>

commit e96542e55a2aacf4bdeccfe2f17b77c4895b4df2 upstream.

Similar to a race condition that exists in the tx path, the hardware
might re-read the 'next' pointer of a descriptor of the last completed
frame. This only affects non-EDMA (pre-AR93xx) devices.

To deal with this race, defer clearing and re-linking a completed rx
descriptor until the next one has been processed.
