parentixgbevf: add support for software timestamps (diff)
intel-ethernet: software timestamp skbs as late as possible
Many of the Intel Ethernet drivers call skb_tx_timestamp() earlier than necessary. Move the calls to this function to the latest point possible, just prior to notifying hardware of the new Tx packet when we bump the tail register. This affects i40e, iavf, igb, igc, and ixgbe. The e100, e1000, e1000e, fm10k, and ice drivers already call the skb_tx_timestamp() function just prior to indicating the Tx packet to hardware, so they do not need to be changed.
