Subject: [GIT] Networking

1) Add wimax device IDs for devices found in thinkpad laptops.  From
   Alexey Shvetsov.

2) Caching netfilter settings across dev_forward_skb() breaks
   namespaces and conntrack zones, we need to call nf_reset() here.
   From Ben Greear.

3) pskb_expand_head() can corrupt skb->csum with some devices.  Fix
   from Andrea Shepard.  skb_copy_expand() had the same bug, so fix it
   there too.

4) Fix crashes wrt. RLB mode in bonding, from Greg Edwards.

5) macvtap must limit packet queue backlog size else OOM, fix from
   Herbert Xu.

6) GSO errors in tun driver trigger a BUG(), which makes it impossible
   to get useful data and debug this problem.  Just warn, print a
   useful message, and drop the packet.  From Michael S. Tsirkin.

7) The mirred packet scheduler action holds references to network
   devices.  However, it doesn't have a netdevice notifier so those
   entries can drop their refs on unregister.  This makes network	
   devices unremovable and leads to hangs.  Fix from Stephen Hemminger.

8) ath9k driver uses wrong DMA direction values in map/unmap calls
   during ath_rx_tasklet.  Fix from Ming Lei.

9) ieee80211_send_layer2_update does receive from process context,
   therefore it must use netif_rx_ni().  From John Linville.

10) When ipv6 is disabled on an interface, we should never add ipv6 routes
    to it.  From Brian Haley.

11) Trap invalid virtual function settings in ixgbe/igb driver, from
    Andy Gospodarek.

12) bnx2x driver needs more mutual exclusion to prevent corruption of
    the statistics handling and state.  From Vladislav Zolotarov.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
