Hi Colin, thanks for your patch.

Reviewed-by: Tariq Toukan <tariqt@...lanox.com>

I would suggest adding a Fixes line, but looking into the history of the 
typo, it went through many patches that modified this line but preserved 
the typo.
Actually, it dates back to the very first commit that introduces mlx4 
driver:

Patches history:
2b3ddf27f48c net/mlx4_core: Replace VF zero mac with random mac in mlx4_core
ef96f7d46ad8 net/mlx4_en: Handle unassigned VF MAC address correctly
6bbb6d99f3d2 net/mlx4_en: Optimize Rx fast path filter checks
453a60827735 mlx4_en: Giving interface name in debug messages
c27a02cd94d6 mlx4_en: Add driver for Mellanox ConnectX 10GbE NIC

I'm not sure what the "Fixes:" policy is in these cases.

Thanks,
Tariq
