Cong Wang (7):
  netpoll: use GFP_ATOMIC in slave_enable_netpoll() and __netpoll_setup()
  netpoll: make __netpoll_cleanup non-block
  netconsole: do not release spin_lock when calling __netpoll_cleanup
  bridge: call NETDEV_RELEASE notifier in br_del_if()
  netpoll: take rcu_read_lock_bh() in netpoll_rx()
  netpoll: use netpoll_rx_on() in netpoll_rx()
  netpoll: take rcu_read_lock_bh() in netpoll_send_skb_on_dev()
