gianfar: Fix suspend/resume for wol magic packet

If we disable NAPI in the first place we can mask the device's
interrupts (and halt it) without fearing that imask may be
concurrently accessed from interrupt context, so there's
no need to do local_irq_save() around gfar_halt_nodisable().
lock_rx_qs()/unlock_tx_qs() are just obsoleted and potentially
buggy routines.  The txlock is currently used in the driver only
to manage TX congestion, it has nothing to do with halting the
device.  With these changes, the TX processing is stopped before

Compact gfar_halt() is used instead of gfar_halt_nodisable(),
as it disables Rx/TX DMA h/w blocks and the Rx/TX h/w queues.
gfar_start() re-enables all these blocks on resume.  Enabling
the magic-packet mode remains the same, note that the RX block
is re-enabled just before entering sleep mode.

Add IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag for the error interrupt line, to signal
that the interrupt line must remain active during sleep in order
to wake the system by magic packet (MAG) reception interrupt.
(On some systems the MAG interrupt did trigger w/o this flag
as well, but on others it didn't.)

Without these fixes, when suspended during fair Tx traffic the
interface occasionally failed to be woken up by magic packet.
