Subject: [net-next 00/11][pull request] 40GbE Intel Wired LAN Driver Updates 2017-03-25

This series contains updates to i40e and i40evf only.

Alex updates the driver code so that we can do bulk updates of the page
reference count instead of just incrementing it by one reference at a
time.  Fixed an issue where we were not resetting skb back to NULL when
we have freed it.  Cleaned up the i40e_process_skb_fields() to align with
other Intel drivers.  Removed FCoE code, since it is not supported in any
of the Fortville/Fortpark hardware, so there is not much point of carrying
the code around, especially if it is broken and untested.

Harshitha fixes a bug in the driver where the calculation of the RSS size
was not taking into account the number of traffic classes enabled.

Robert fixes a potential race condition during VF reset by eliminating
IOMMU DMAR Faults caused by VF hardware and when the OS initiates a VF
reset and before the reset is finished we modify the VF's settings.

Carolyn adds a needed delay to accommodate the hardware needs.

Bimmy removes a delay that is no longer needed, since it was only needed
for preproduction hardware.

Colin King fixes null pointer dereference, where VSI was being
dereferenced before the VSI NULL check.

Jake fixes an issue with the recent addition of the "client code" to the
driver, where we attempt to use an uninitialized variable, so correctly
initialize the params variable by calling i40e_client_get_params().

The following are changes since commit 2239cc634395ecce69dd047be9104f71edc417b4:
  Merge branch 'epoll-busypoll'
