Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Add support for rx flow hash configuration in a network
 device

Added new interface to ethtool to configure receive network flow 
classification. This patch adds support for flow distribution using 
hashing where the device can be configured with the fields in the 
receive packet to hash onto one of the multiple Rx rings.

This feature has 3 related patches:

1. An ethtool application patch.
2. A kernel patch for the ethtool interface.
3. A kernel patch for the niu driver that implements the ethtool config 
ioctl functions. NOTE: The niu driver already has rx flow hashing 
implemented. With these 3 patches, this feature is now configurable 
using ethtool.

Thanks!
