Subject: pull request net: 2013-10-02

Hello David,

this is a "one-change" pull request intended for net/linux-3.{12,11,10}.

This patch from Matthias Schiffer is fixing the init routine of the Network
Coding component by preventing it from registering the handler for the CODED
packet type each time a new soft-interface is created.

Without this fix a second soft-interface cannot be created unless the Network
Coding component is not part of the module (not compiled-in).

As I mentioned before, this fix should be queued for stable as it aims
kernels older than linux-3.12.

Please pull or let me know of any problem.
Thanks a lot,

p.s. this change generates some non-negligible conflicts with the patchset I'd
like to send to net-next during this week. Since I'd like to solve them all by
myself before sending the new patches, I'd kindly ask you to merge net into
net-next when possible.

Included change:
- fix multi soft-interfaces setups with Network Coding enabled by
  registering the CODED packet type once only (instead of once per soft-if)
