commit 7583605b6d29f1f7f6fc505b883328089f3485ad ("ucc_geth: Fix empty
TX queue processing") fixed empty TX queue mishandling, but didn't
account another corner case: when TX queue becomes full.

Without this patch the driver will stop transmiting when TX queue
becomes full since 'bd == ugeth->txBd[txQ]' actually checks for
two things: queue empty or full.

Let's better check for NULL skb, which unambiguously signals an empty
