[TG3]: Fix ethtool loopback test lockup

The tg3_abort_hw() call in tg3_test_loopback() is causing lockups on
some devices. tg3_abort_hw() disables the memory arbiter, causing
tg3_reset_hw() to hang when it tries to write the pre-reset signature.
tg3_abort_hw() should only be called after the pre-reset signature has
been written. This is all done in tg3_reset_hw() so the tg3_abort_hw()
call is unnecessary and can be removed.

[ Also bump driver version and release date. -DaveM ]
