Subject: [PATCH 0/4] hv_netvsc: Fix shutdown issues on older Windows hosts

Guests running on WS2012 hosts would not shutdown when changing network
interface setting (e.g. Number of channels, MTU ... etc). 

This patch series addresses these shutdown issues we enecountered with WS2012
hosts. It's essentialy a rework of the series sent in on top of latest upstream

Fixes: 0ef58b0a05c1 ("hv_netvsc: change GPAD teardown order on older versions")

Mohammed Gamal (4):
  hv_netvsc: Use Windows version instead of NVSP version on GPAD
  hv_netvsc: Split netvsc_revoke_buf() and netvsc_teardown_gpadl()
  hv_netvsc: Ensure correct teardown message sequence order
  hv_netvsc: Pass net_device parameter to revoke and teardown functions
