Gotcha, so I can lose the pull too. Here's an updated patch with log, thanks
for the help.

    net: smsc911x: fix skb handling in receive path
    
    The SMSC911x driver resets the ->head, ->data and ->tail pointers in the
    skb on the reset path in order to avoid buffer overflow due to packet
    padding performed by the hardware.
    
    This patch fixes the receive path so that the skb pointers are fixed up
    after the data has been read from the device, The error path is also
    fixed to use number of words consistently and prevent erroneous FIFO
    fastforwarding when skipping over bad data.
