Subject: [net-next 0/9][pull request] 10GbE Intel Wired LAN Driver Updates 2017-06-13

This series contains updates to ixgbe and ixgbevf only.

Jake completes his fix ups for our drivers with the ixgbe changes to
resolve a race condition in processing timestamp requests.  These fixes
are the same fixes Jake applied earlier to the other drivers, including
the added statistic to help administrators know when an application
timestamp request is ignored.

With all the recent ixgbe/ixgbevf changes and fixes, Tony bumps the
the driver versions.  Then Tony provides a fix to resolve a static
analysis warning by changing a variable to unsigned integer since the
value can never be negative. 

Emil fixes an issue for X550 devices where the qde parameter was being
ignored, so PFQDE.HIDE_VLAN was not being set.

Jeff Mahoney from SuSE fixes a possible kernel crash, where there was
a small window where tasks writing to the sriov_numvfs sysfs attribute
can sneak in after we call register_netdev().  So we need to call
pci_set_drvdata() before and not after register_netdev() to preserve the
intent of commit 0fb6a55cc31f ("ixgbe: fix crash on rmmod after probe
