Subject: [PATCH 12/18] netdevice hdlc: Convert directly reference of netdev->priv
 to netdev->ml_priv

We have some reasons to kill netdev->priv:
1. netdev->priv is equal to netdev_priv().
2. netdev_priv() wraps the calculation of netdev->priv's offset, obviously
   netdev_priv() is more flexible than netdev->priv.
But we cann't kill netdev->priv, because so many drivers reference to it
directly.

OK, becasue Dave S. Miller said, "every direct netdev->priv usage is a bug",
and I want to kill netdev->priv later, I decided to convert all the direct
reference of netdev->priv first.

Different to readonly reference of netdev->priv, in this driver, netdev->priv
was changed. I use netdev->ml_priv to replace netdev->priv.
