net: dm9000: Get the chip in a known good state before enabling interrupts
Currently the DM9000 driver requests the primary interrupt before it resets the chip and puts it into a known good state. This means that if the chip is asserting interrupt for some reason we can end up with a screaming IRQ that the interrupt handler is unable to deal with. Avoid this by only requesting the interrupt after we've reset the chip so we know what state it's in. This started manifesting itself on one of my boards in the past month or so, I suspect as a result of some core infrastructure changes removing some form of mitigation against bad behaviour here, even when things boot it seems that the new code brings the interface up more quickly.
