I was looking at this change in a bit closer detail and one thing that
stuck out to me was the above where the barrier had been moved from
after the stmmac_set_rx_owner() call to before.

So I moved this back and I no longer saw the crash. However, then I
recalled I had the patch to enable the debug prints for the buffer
address applied but after reverting that, the crash occurred again.

In other words, what works for me is moving the above barrier and adding
the debug print, which appears to suggest that there is some
timing/coherency issue here. Anyway, maybe this is clue to what is going
on?
