[Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH net-next v1 1/7] igb: clear out tstamp after sending the packet.

skb->tstamp is being used at multiple places. On the transmit side, it
is used to determine the launchtime of the packet. It is also used to
determine the software timestamp after the packet has been transmitted.

So, clear out the tstamp value after it has been read so that we do not
report false software timestamp on the receive side.
