Bug fixes galore, mostly in drivers as is often the case:

1) USB gadget and cdc_eem drivers need adjustments to their frame
   size lengths in order to handle VLANs correctly.  From Ian

2) TIPC and several network drivers erroneously call tasklet_disable
   before tasklet_kill, fix from Xiaotian Feng.

3) r8169 driver needs to apply the WOL suspend quirk to more chipsets,
   fix from Cyril Brulebois.

4) Fix multicast filters on RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_35 r8169 chips, from
   Nathan Walp.

5) FDB netlink dumps should use RTM_NEWNEIGH as the message type,
   not zero.  From John Fastabend.

6) Fix smsc95xx tx checksum offload on big-endian, from Steve

7) __inet_diag_dump() needs to repsect and report the error value
   returned from inet_diag_lock_handler() rather than ignore it.
   Otherwise if an inet diag handler is not available for a particular
   protocol, we essentially report success instead of giving an error
   indication.  Fix from Cyrill Gorcunov.

8) When the QFQ packet scheduler sees TSO/GSO packets it does not
   handle things properly, and in fact ends up corrupting it's
   datastructures as well as mis-schedule packets.  Fix from Paolo

9) Fix oopser in skb_loop_sk(), from Eric Leblond.

10) CXGB4 passes partially uninitialized datastructures in to FW
    commands, fix from Vipul Pandya.

11) When we send unsolicited ipv6 neighbour advertisements, we should
    send them to the link-local allnodes multicast address, as per
    RFC4861.  Fix from Hannes Frederic Sowa.

12) There is some kind of bug in the usbnet's kevent deferral mechanism,
    but more immediately when it triggers an uncontrolled stream of
    kernel messages spam the log.  Rate limit the error log message
    triggered when this problem occurs, as sending thousands of error
    messages into the kernel log doesn't help matters at all, and in
    fact makes further diagnosis more difficult.

    From Steve Glendinning.

13) Fix gianfar restore from hibernation, from Wang Dongsheng.

14) The netlink message attribute sizes are wrong in the ipv6 GRE driver,
    it was using the size of ipv4 addresses instead of ipv6 ones :-)  Fix
    from Nicolas Dichtel.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
