[Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH] e1000: fix data race between tx_ring->next_to_clean

e1000_clean_tx_irq cleans buffers and sets tx_ring->next_to_clean,
then e1000_xmit_frame reuses the cleaned buffers. But there are no
memory barriers when buffers gets recycled, so the recycled buffers
can be corrupted.

Use smp_store_release to update tx_ring->next_to_clean and
smp_load_acquire to read tx_ring->next_to_clean to properly
hand off buffers from e1000_clean_tx_irq to e1000_xmit_frame.

The data race was found with KernelThreadSanitizer (KTSAN).
