Per MPC8548ERM [1] chapter 14.5.3.4.1:

When RCTRL.RSF is 1, frames less than 64 bytes are accepted upon
a DA match. But currently QEMU does the opposite. This commit
reverses the RCTRL.RSF testing logic to match the manual.

Due to the reverse of the logic, certain guests may potentially
break if they don't program eTSEC to have RCTRL.RSF bit set.
When RCTRL.RSF is 0, short frames are silently dropped, however
as of today both slirp and tap networking do not pad short frames
(e.g.: an ARP packet) to the minimum frame size of 60 bytes. So
ARP requests will be dropped, preventing the guest from becoming
visible on the network.

The same issue was reported on e1000 and vmxenet3 before, see:

commit 78aeb23eded2 ("e1000: Pad short frames to minimum size (60 bytes)")
commit 40a87c6c9b11 ("vmxnet3: Pad short frames to minimum size (60 bytes)")

Fixes: eb1e7c3e5146 ("Add Enhanced Three-Speed Ethernet Controller (eTSEC)")
Signed-off-by: Bin Meng <bin.meng@windriver.com>

Changes in v3:
- remove the slirp/tap networking workaround and only do the reverse

Changes in v2:
- rewrite the commit message and reverse the RCTRL.RSF test logic

Applied to ppc-for-6.0.
