drivers: net: cpsw: discard all packets received when interface is down

When the Ethernet interface is brought down during high Ethernet traffic,
then cpsw creates the following warn dump. When cpdma has already processed
the packet then the status will be greater than 0, so the cpsw_rx_handler
considers that the interface is up and try to resubmit one more rx buffer
to cpdma which fails as the DMA is in teardown process. This can be avoided
by checking the interface state and then process the received packet, if the
interface is down just discard and free the skb and return.
