Hash Suite for Android: free password hash cracker in your pocket

Subject: [GIT] Networking

1) icmp6_dst_alloc() returns NULL instead of ERR_PTR() leading to
   crashes, particularly during shutdown.  Reported by Dave
   Jones and fixed by Eric Dumazet.

2) hyperv and wimax/i2400m return NETDEV_TX_BUSY when they have
   already freed the SKB, which causes crashes as to the caller
   this means requeue the packet.  Fixes from Eric Dumazet.

3) usbnet driver doesn't allocate the right amount of headroom
   on fresh RX SKBs, fix from Eric Dumazet.

4) Fix regression in ip6_mc_find_dev_rcu(), as an RCU lookup it
   abolutely should not take a reference to 'dev', this leads
   to leaks.  Fix from RonQing Li.

5) Fix netfilter ctnetlink race between delete and timeout
   expiration.  From Pablo Neira Ayuso.

6) Revert SFQ change which causes regressions, specifically queueing
   to tail can lead to unavoidable flow starvation.  From Eric

7) Fix a memory leak and a crash on corrupt firmware files in bnx2x,
   from Michal Schmidt.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
