parenttipc: fix a missing rhashtable_walk_exit() (diff)
Revert "net: stmmac: Do not keep rearming the coalesce timer in stmmac_xmit"
This reverts commit 4ae0169fd1b3c792b66be58995b7e6b629919ecf. This change in the handling of the coalesce timer is causing regression on (at least) amlogic platforms. Network will break down very quickly (a few seconds) after starting a download. This can easily be reproduced using iperf3 for example. The problem has been reported on the S805, S905, S912 and A113 SoCs (Realtek and Micrel PHYs) and it is likely impacting all Amlogics platforms using Gbit ethernet No problem was seen with the platform using 10/100 only PHYs (GXL internal) Reverting change brings things back to normal and allows to use network again until we better understand the problem with the coalesce timer.
