[GIT] Networking

1) hostap irq handler commit revert, breaks bringup of certain
cards. From John W. Linville.

2) mac80211 does "if (foo->ops->x) foo->ops->y();", fix to
"if (foo->opx->y) foo->ops->y();" :-) From Holger Schurig

3) Fix lockdep warning wrt. sysfs_create_group and requesting firmware
in iwlwifi. Otherwise ABBA deadlock is possible due to the mutex
grab ordering these two code paths need. From Emmanuel Grumbach.

4) rtl8139_init_board() leaves 'i' past end of table index, then
indexes into the table using 'i'. Fix from Denis Kirjanov.

5) We erroneously can process blockack frames before association
responses, this causes the connection to get into a state where
no traffic can pass. This problem tends to eminate with iwlagn

A more complicated and complete fix is possible, but here we
make a smaller fix wherein we process aggregation action frames
from the managed interface skb queue which provides the proper
serialization with association responses.

Fix from Johannes Berg.

6) ath5k needs PM_SLEEP dependencies, from Tobias Doerffel.

7) We have several backtraces (forward to us by Andrew Morton) in the
ipv6 multicast code due to unecessary high-order allocations
happening when the MTU is set to handle jumbo frames or similar on
a device and we try to send out ipv6 multicast reports.

We don't need such a huge SKB here, the code knows how to chop up a
report into multiple frames if the number of entries to report is
larger than we can fit in a single frame, so keep the allocation
PAGE_SIZE or smaller to make these allocations more reliable. Fix
from Eric Dumazet.

8) iwl3945 devices can suffer from stuck command queues just like other
chip revisions, so hook up the iwl_bg_monitor_recover handler for
them too. From Reinette Chatre.

9) iwl3945 needs a special handler for short scans, fixes bug
from Abhijeet Kolekar.

10) ip6mr_for_each_table() macro has a typo in one of it's variable
names. Fix from Eric Dumazet.

11) Many users report that the R8169 PHY doesn't come up cleanly. It
was tracked down to a recent commit adding full initialization of
the PHY for 8169scd chips. But the actual problem is more
general in nature and not related to that commit.

Timo Teräs did some excellent debugging and found that MDIO writes
were often failing in these new PHY init routines.

Comparing the vendor driver with our's he found that the vendor
driver makes extra delays after MDIO writes complete.

The hardware engineers have confirmed the necessity of these
extra delays and they fix the problems for everyone.

Fix from Timo Teräs, and there may be some small tweaks in the
future here as the hardware designers indicate that reads
probably need this treatment too.

12) ASIX USB network device doesn't handle VLAN packets properly due
to a mis-coded RX packet size verification check. Fix from Jussi

13) IPMR table lists get corrupted because we free list members before
unlinking. Fix from Eric Dumazet, and this fixes the regression
list entry that was under discussion in the past day.

14) wl1251_sdio_probe() leaks memory in error path, from Grazvydas

15) New device ID in p54usb for Dell chip, from Jason Dravet.

16) Some MAINTAINER list tweaks for Intel wireless drivers.

17) Missing RCU locking in iwlagn_tx_status(), which is required
for calling ieee80211_find_sta(). Fix from Johannes Berg.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
