With a standard MTU, the results did not improved a lot... TCP RX add a
small improvement (~4MBit/s) but that is the only one.
Here are the new results with the FDMA:

TCP TX: 48.2 Mbits/sec
TCP RX: 60.9 Mbits/sec
UDP TX: 28.8 Mbits/sec
UDP RX: 18.8 Mbits/sec

In jumbo mode (9000 bytes frames), there is improvements:

TCP TX: 74.4 Mbits/sec
TCP RX: 109 Mbits/sec
UDP TX: 105 Mbits/sec
UDP RX: 51.6 Mbits/sec

Indeed, the timestamping should be done before sending it.

Yes, I could use that.

Ok.

If it is dynamically allocated, then container_of can't be used anymore
in the napi poll function. I could move it back in struct fdma but
then, I would need a backpointer to ocelot in the fdma struct.
Or I could use napi->dev and access the ocelot_port_private to then get
the ocelot pointer but I have not seen much driver using the napi->dev
field. Tell me what you would like.
