Subject: [net-next 00/11][pull request] Intel Wired LAN Driver Updates 2014-11-03

This series contains updates to i40e and i40evf.

Akeem adds a check for i40e so that flow director flush and reinit are
not done when flow director is not enabled.

Mitch fixes the i40evf driver to properly handle multiple admin queue
messages, by reinit the msg_size field each time we go through the loop.
Without this, we may receive truncated messages due to the firmware
thinking we have insufficient buffer size.  Also fixes the link checking
logic to only check the carrier state if the interface is actually
open, which allows link changes to be reported correctly without spamming
the VFs.  Updates i40e to inset the VSI ID in the QTX_CTL register
when configuring queues for VMDq VSIs.

Paul adds support for 10G-base-T in i40evf.

Jesse fixes i40e where the call to irq_dynamic_disable() was turning off
the interrupt completely when trying to set ITR to 0 (for lowest

Shannon removes debugfs dump stats function, since it was not being
kept up-to-date and was redundant with the ethtool output.  Also, scales
back the LAN MSIx usage to force queue/vector sharing and leave some
vectors for Flow Director, VMDq, etc. when there are more cores than
vectors available to the PF.  Cleans up the error reporting for
get_lump() resource tracking errors.  Also adds a check for the
debug module parameter earlier to be able to catch the early configuration
phase admin queue messages.

The following are changes since commit 55b42b5ca2dcf143465968697fe6c6503b05fca1:
