[GIT]: Networking

From: David Miller
Date: Thu Sep 03 2009 - 02:02:26 EST

1) Packet scheduler classifier code can leak some uninitialized
kernel bytes to userspace. Fix from Eric Dumazet.

2) Revert tasklet_hrtimer conversions, naggling problems exist
and -rcX is not the time to be tinkering with it.

3) Sockets can leak when sk_free()'d shortly after sk_alloc()
with some protocols due to initialization order of
sk->sk_mem_alloc. Fix from Jarek Poplawski and Eric Dumazet.

4) gianfar frees netdev without unregistering it resulting in
crashes on unload. Fix from Toru UCHIYAMA.

5) ipw2200 uses large linear memory area (ie. high order allocation)
for firmware loading via DMA, which easily can (and does) fail.
Fix from Zhu Yi via John Linville.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
