Subject: [PATCHv2 net-next 0/2] sunvnet: Use multiple Tx queues.

v2: moved tcp fix out of this series per David Miller feedback

The primary objective of this patch-set is to address the suggestion from
With the changes in Patch 2, every vnet_port will get  packets from 
a single tx-queue, and flow-control/head-of-line-blocking is 
confined to the vnet_ports that share that tx queue (as opposed to 
flow-controlling *all* peers).

Patch 1 is an optimization that resets the DATA_READY bit when
we re-enable Rx interrupts.  This optimization lets us exit quickly 
from vnet_event_napi() when new data has not triggered an interrupt.

Sowmini Varadhan (3):
  Correction to RFC number in comment
  Reset LDC_EVENT_DATA_READY when napi completes.
  Use one Tx queue per vnet_port
