Subject: [net-next PATCH v0 2/5] net: addr_list: add exclusive dev_uc_add

This adds a dev_uc_add_excl() call similar to the original
dev_uc_add() except it sets the global bit. With this
change the reference count will not be bumped and -EEXIST
will be returned if a duplicate address exists.

This is useful for drivers that support SR-IOV and want
to manage the unicast lists.
