[GIT] Networking

From: David Miller

1) As alluded to in the previous networking pull, for correct
operation r8169 needs a post-mdio-read delay just as it needs one
for post-mdio-write. From Timo Teräs.

2) 8139 driver's NAPI completion is racy, the sequence for completing
a NAPI poll should be:


But these driver bits had the ordering reversed. If the race is
triggered, NAPI can be left disabled forever and therefore no
more RX packets will be received until a down/up of the device.

3) When a multiqueue device is plumbed into a non-multiqueue-capable
SW layer (bonding, bridging, etc.) we print a warning about the RX
queue selection being "out of range", which is not very useful
since we are aware of this issue. All it does is spam the log and
make life difficult for the user. Only print the message in cases
where there is real trouble.

From Tim Gardner.

4) LXT973 phy support from Richard Cochran.

5) CAIF protocol has tests like:

if (!x > y)

which are clearly bogus, fixes from Dan Carpenter.

6) HW timestamping support broke RX on some gianfar chips, turn the
feature off for now until we can understand the issue better. From
Anton Vorontsov.

7) IPV6 icmp bumps wrong stat counters due to typos in a 2.6.35 change,
fix from Eric Dumazet.

8) When a hw accelerated VLAN interface is hooked up to a bond, the
packet dropping behavior for inactive bonding slaves erroneously
changes compared to what happens with all other kinds of devices.

Fix by tracking whether the packet should be dropped inside of the
SKB so layers can communicate that they've done the bonding check
already. Fix from John Fastabend.

9) Packet rate estimator lacks sufficient SMP locking. The basic
assumption was that the RTNL would be held when estimators are
created or destroyed, but that doesn't happen in some cases, in
particular the xt_RATEEST netfilter module does not do this.

Adding RTNL to those spots is non-trivial and would actually cause
more problems than it would fix. So add a new spinlock to protect
the critical insert/delete/search operations.

Fix from Eric Dumazet.

10) pktgen miscalculates inter-packet delays, basically the old calculation

now = get_time();
state->next_time = now + state->delay;

we fix it to be:

state->next_time = next_time + state->delay;

From Daniel Turull.

11) Missing endianness conversion in firmware header field in wimax driver,
from Inaky Perez-Gonzalez.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
