Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] net: Add Keystone NetCP ethernet driver support

Update version after incorporating David Miller's comment from earlier
posting [1]. I would like to get these merged for upcoming 3.18 merge
window if there are no concerns on this version.

The network coprocessor (NetCP) is a hardware accelerator that processes
Ethernet packets. NetCP has a gigabit Ethernet (GbE) subsystem with a ethernet
switch sub-module to send and receive packets. NetCP also includes a packet
accelerator (PA) module to perform packet classification operations such as
header matching, and packet modification operations such as checksum
generation. NetCP can also optionally include a Security Accelerator(SA)
capable of performing IPSec operations on ingress/egress packets.
Keystone SoC's also have a 10 Gigabit Ethernet Subsystem (XGbE) which
includes a 3-port Ethernet switch sub-module capable of 10Gb/s and
1Gb/s rates per Ethernet port.
NetCP driver has a plug-in module architecture where each of the NetCP
sub-modules exist as a loadable kernel module which plug in to the netcp
core. These sub-modules are represented as "netcp-devices" in the dts
bindings. It is mandatory to have the ethernet switch sub-module for
the ethernet interface to be operational. Any other sub-module like the
PA is optional.

Both GBE and XGBE network processors supported using common driver. It
is also designed to handle future variants of NetCP.
