Ayway, below is the hunk that I have already dropped from my tree (so that 
conflict in linux-next is gone), please feel free to apply it to your 
tree, and let me known whether you want me to reject all furutre patches 
touching net/ and driver/net/ to be refused on my side and redirected your 
way, or if you are fine with me handling the conflict resolution before I 
push them to Linus.

fixes them. No code changes.
