Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/12]bnx2x: add BCM57711 and new features


This update adds support for two new chips: BCM57711 and its variant the
BCM57711E, adds new link management code, new statistics code, enhanced
self-tests, IPv6 TSO and least but not last TPA, our hardware based LRO.

Wendy Xiong from IBM contributed the PCIE EEH handling code.

I would like to thank Eliezer Tamir for writing and maintaining the
driver for the past two years. I will take over maintaining the bnx2x
driver from now on. 

1: Renaming bnx2x.c to bnx2x_main.c - preparing to breakout the link
code to a new file. (this patch is a simple git mv bnx2x.c bnx2x_main.c
and the necessary Makefile change)
2: New link code - Major cleanup, move link to separate file, smother
support of external PHY handling with our device
3: New microcode
4: Add support for BCM57711 HW, re-factoring struct bnx2x to allow this
5: New statistics code, fixes race between stats and close, add BCM57711
6: Add TPA, Broadcom's HW LRO
7: Re-factor Tx code, add GSO_6 support
8. Enhanced self test
9: Add PCIE EEH support
10: Add CNIC support (needs Michael Chan's CNIC code to compile,
defaults to being defined out)
11: Update version
