Subject: [net-next 6/8] ixgbe: Use __free_pages instead of put_page to release pages

From: Alexander Duyck <>

This change replaces the calls to put_page with calls to __free_page.

Since the FCoE code is able to access order 1 pages I thought it would be a
good idea to change things over to using __free_pages since that is the
preferred approach for freeing pages.
