1) The new SR-IOV VF netlink messages had a critical error in their
design, they were not designed to be symmetric (therefore you can't
take a netlink message dump, and use the elements to recreate
configurations like you can with other netlink message types).

Cure this by using nested netlink attributes.

Better to fix this before it appears in a released kernel.

Fix from Chris Wright.

2) The per-cpu TCP md5 signature state was not properly softirq
protected, leading to all kinds of corruptions. Fix from Eric

3) SCTP transport teardown can leave a timer running, fix from Wei

Please pull, thanks!
