Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net
Conflicts: drivers/net/ethernet/freescale/fec_main.c drivers/net/ethernet/renesas/sh_eth.c net/ipv4/gre.c The GRE conflict is between a bug fix (kfree_skb --> kfree_skb_list) and the splitting of the gre.c code into seperate files. The FEC conflict was two sets of changes adding ethtool support code in an "!CONFIG_M5272" CPP protected block. Finally the sh_eth.c conflict was between one commit add bits set in the .eesr_err_check mask whilst another commit removed the .tx_error_check member and assignments. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
