CPU Performance improvements for stmmac. Please check bellow for results
before and after the series.

Patch 1/7, allows RX Interrupt on Completion to be disabled and only use the
RX HW Watchdog.

Patch 2/7, setups the default RX coalesce settings instead of using the
minimum value.

Patch 3/7, enables the Transmit Buffer Unavailable interrupt on GMAC4+ cores
so that we don't miss any packet that could have been coalesced.

Patch 4/7 and 5/7, removes the uneeded computations for RX Flow Control
activation/de-activation, on some cases.

Patch 6/7, tunes-up the default coalesce settings.

Patch 7/7, corrects the interpretation of TX Coalesce.

Please do not apply this. I found an issue with patch 1/7 and I have 
some more changes that reduce even more the CPU usage.

Thanks,

Ok.
