As for today STMMAC_ALIGN macro (which is used to align DMA stuff)
relies on L1 line length (L1_CACHE_BYTES).
This isn't correct in case of system with several cache levels
which might have L1 cache line length smaller than L2 line. This
can lead to sharing one cache line between DMA buffer and other
data, so we can lose this data while invalidate DMA buffer before
DMA transaction.

Fix that by using SMP_CACHE_BYTES instead of L1_CACHE_BYTES for
aligning.

This is definitely an improvement, so applied and queued up for
-stable.

There is also dma_get_cache_alignment(), so maybe we can eventually
use that here instead.
