Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net
Pull networking fixes from David S. Miller: 1) Since we do RCU lookups on ipv4 FIB entries, we have to test if the entry is dead before returning it to our caller. 2) openvswitch locking and packet validation fixes from Ansis Atteka, Jesse Gross, and Pravin B Shelar. 3) Fix PM resume locking in IGB driver, from Benjamin Poirier. 4) Fix VLAN header handling in vhost-net and macvtap, from Basil Gor. 5) Revert a bogus network namespace isolation change that was causing regressions on S390 networking devices. 6) If bonding decides to process and handle a LACPDU frame, we shouldn't bump the rx_dropped counter. From Jiri Bohac. 7) Fix mis-calculation of available TX space in r8169 driver when doing TSO, which can lead to crashes and/or hung device. From Julien Ducourthial. 8) SCTP does not validate cached routes properly in all cases, from Nicolas Dichtel. 9) Link status interrupt needs to be handled in ks8851 driver, from Stephen Boyd. 10) Use capable(), not cap_raised(), in connector/userns netlink code. From Eric W. Biederman via Andrew Morton. 11) Fix pktgen OOPS on module unload, from Eric Dumazet. 12) iwlwifi under-estimates SKB truesizes, also from Eric Dumazet. 13) Cure division by zero in SFC driver, from Ben Hutchings. * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (26 commits) ks8851: Update link status during link change interrupt macvtap: restore vlan header on user read vhost-net: fix handle_rx buffer size bonding: don't increase rx_dropped after processing LACPDUs connector/userns: replace netlink uses of cap_raised() with capable() sctp: check cached dst before using it pktgen: fix crash at module unload Revert "net: maintain namespace isolation between vlan and real device" ehea: fix losing of NEQ events when one event occurred early igb: fix rtnl race in PM resume path ipv4: Do not use dead fib_info entries. r8169: fix unsigned int wraparound with TSO sfc: Fix division by zero when using one RX channel and no SR-IOV openvswitch: Validation of IPv6 set port action uses IPv4 header net: compare_ether_addr[_64bits]() has no ordering cdc_ether: Ignore bogus union descriptor for RNDIS devices bnx2x: bug fix when loading after SAN boot e1000: Silence sparse warnings by correcting type igb, ixgbe: netdev_tx_reset_queue incorrectly called from tx init path openvswitch: Release rtnl_lock if ovs_vport_cmd_build_info() failed. ...
