Subject[PATCH 4.9 42/66] r8169: fix memory corruption on retrieval of hardware statistics.
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Francois Romieu <romieu@fr.zoreil.com>


[ Upstream commit a78e93661c5fd30b9e1dee464b2f62f966883ef7 ]

Hardware statistics retrieval hurts in tight invocation loops.

Avoid extraneous write and enforce strict ordering of writes targeted to
the tally counters dump area address registers.
