net: ep93xx_eth: fix DMA API violations

>       not be writing to this buffer while it is (in principle) owned
>       by the DMA device.
> 3b. It then calls dma_sync_single_for_cpu() for the buffer.
>       This transfers ownership of the buffer to the CPU, which surely

> 4. In ep93xx_rx,
> 4a. It calls dma_sync_single_for_cpu() for the buffer.
>       This at least transfers the DMA buffer ownership to the CPU
>       before the CPU reads the buffer
> 4b. It then uses skb_copy_to_linear_data() to copy the data out.
>       At no point does it transfer ownership back to the DMA device.
> 5. When the driver is removed, it dma_unmap_single()'s the buffer.
>       This transfers ownership of the buffer to the CPU.
> 6. It frees the buffer.
>
> While it may work on ep93xx, it's not respecting the DMA API rules,
> and with DMA debugging enabled it will probably encounter quite a few
> warnings.

This patch fixes these violations.
