netdev-2.6.git frozen

Similar to David's recent announcement, netdev-2.6.git is now closed to new features.

Though really, [my fault] I should have posted this as soon as the merge window opened. The stuff that goes into each new release, when the merge window opens, should be stuff that has already been through a round of testing in -mm.

The updates presented in netdev -- e100, e1000, ixgb and sky2 -- will go upstream tomorrow. Everything else will be fixed.

And the message for the future is: don't wait until the merge window opens, to submit your test. Doing so means it doesn't get the normal amount of testing and review, and is thus discouraged.
