[ Upstream commit 202a0a70e445caee1d0ec7aae814e64b1189fa4d ]

When the frame check sequence (FCS) is split across the last two frames
of a fragmented packet, part of the FCS gets counted twice, once when
subtracting the FCS, and again when subtracting the previously received

For example, if 1602 bytes are received, and the first fragment contains
the first 1600 bytes (including the first two bytes of the FCS), and the
second fragment contains the last two bytes of the FCS:

  'skb->len == 1600' from the first fragment

  size  = lstatus & BD_LENGTH_MASK; # 1602
  size -= ETH_FCS_LEN;              # 1598
  size -= skb->len;                 # -2

Since the size is unsigned, it wraps around and causes a BUG later in
the packet handling, as shown below:

Change the size to a signed integer and then trim off any part of the
FCS that was received prior to the last fragment.
