Subject: [PATCH] NET : loopback driver can use loopback_dev integrated
 net_device_stats

Hi David

Please find this patch against net-2.6.22

Thank you

[PATCH] NET : loopback driver can use loopback_dev integrated net_device_stats

Rusty added a new 'stats' field to struct net_device.

loopback driver can use it instead of declaring another struct net_device_stats
This saves some memory.
