Subject: [net-next PATCH 0/2] Provide common means for device address sync

The following series implements a means for synchronizing both unicast and
multicast addresses on a device interface.  The code is based on the original
implementation of dev_uc_sync that was available for syncing a VLAN to the
lower dev.

The original reason for coming up for this patch is a driver that is still in
the early stages of development.  The nearest driver I could find that
appeared to have the same limitations as the driver I was working on was the
Cisco enic driver.  For this reason I chose it as the first driver to make use
of this interface publicly.

However, I do not have a Cisco enic interface so I have only been able to
compile test any changes made to the driver.  I tried to keep this change as
simple as possible to avoid any issues.  Any help with testing would be
greatly appreciated.
