Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/8] Mellanox ethernet driver update Oct-30-2014

Hi Dave,

The 1st patch from Saeed fixes a bug in the last net-next batch where
a VF could get access to set port configuration, the next patch from Amir
fixes a race in the port VPI logic. Next are two performance patches from Ido.

The last four patches from Shani, Matan and myself add support for CHECKSUM_COMPLETE 
reporting on non TCP/UDP packets such as GRE and ICMP. I'd like to deeply thank 
Jerry Chu for his innovation and support in that effort.


Amir Vadai (1):
  net/mlx4_core: Protect port type setting by mutex

Ido Shamay (2):
  net/mlx4_en: Remove RX buffers alignment to IP_ALIGN
  net/mlx4_en: Add __GFP_COLD gfp flags in alloc_pages

Matan Barak (1):
  net/mlx4_core: Add retrieval of CONFIG_DEV parameters

Or Gerlitz (1):
  net/mlx4_en: Remove redundant code from RX/GRO path

Saeed Mahameed (1):
  net/mlx4_core: Prevent VF from changing port configuration

Shani Michaeli (1):
  net: Add calaulation of non folded IPV6 pseudo header checksum
  net/mlx4_en: Extend checksum offloading by CHECKSUM COMPLETE
