I've put these patches into the just-rebased net-2.6.24 tree.

I made a minor modification to the second patch, the
out_free_netdev: code in loopback_init() ended like this:

	goto out;
	return err;

I got rid of the spurious return statement and the trailing
semi-colon after the function closing brace.
