Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.1 066/219] net: axienet: Fix race condition causing TX hang
Date
From: Robert Hancock <hancock@sedsystems.ca>

[ Upstream commit 7de44285c1f69ccfbe8be1d6a16fcd956681fee6 ]

It is possible that the interrupt handler fires and frees up space in
the TX ring in between checking for sufficient TX ring space and
stopping the TX queue in axienet_start_xmit. If this happens, the
queue wake from the interrupt handler will occur before the queue is
stopped, causing a lost wakeup and the adapter's transmit hanging.

To avoid this, after stopping the queue, check again whether there is
sufficient space in the TX ring. If so, wake up the queue again.
