Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: cdc_ncm: add "ndp_to_end" sysfs attribute

Adding a writable sysfs attribute for the "NDP to end"
quirk flag.

This makes it easier for end users to test new devices for
this firmware bug.  We've been lucky so far, but we should
not depend on reporters capable of rebuilding the driver.

+Description:
+		Boolean attribute showing the status of the "NDP to
+		end" quirk.  Defaults to 'N', except for devices
+		already known to need it enabled.
+
+		The "NDP to end" quirk makes the driver place the NDP
+		(the packet index table) after the payload.  The NCM
+		specification does not mandate this, but some devices
+		are known to be more restrictive. Write 'Y' to this
+		attribute for temporary testing of a suspect device
+		failing to work with the default driver settings.
+
+		A device entry should be added to the driver if this
+		quirk is found to be required.
