It looks like we have here 3 different bugs:
- no rx before tx
addresses by this patch:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20220624075139.3139300-1-o.rempel@pengutronix.de/
- pause frames flood without advertising pause frames support
addresses by this patch:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/20220624075139.3139300-2-o.rempel@pengutronix.de/

Can you please test this patches.

- not everything is properly cleaned after module unload.

The last one i as bit more complicated. Lukas Wunner spend last months to solve
this issues:
https://lore.kernel.org/all/d1c87ebe9fc502bffcd1576e238d685ad08321e4.1655987888.git.lukas@wunner.de/

Not sure if this work can be easily backported to v5.15.
