Subject: [PATCH v12 02/17] Add a new struct for device to manipulate external buffer.

From: Xin Xiaohui <xiaohui.xin@...el.com>

Add a structure in structure net_device, the new field is
named as mp_port. It's for mediate passthru (zero-copy).
It contains the capability for the net device driver,
a socket, and an external buffer creator, external means
skb buffer belongs to the device may not be allocated from
kernel space.
