Subject: [net-next 00/10][pull request] 40GbE Intel Wired LAN Driver Updates 2018-02-13

This series contains updates to i40e and i40evf.

Wei Yongjun fixes a function that needed to be "static".  Also fixes the
use of GFP_KERNEL to GFP_ATOMIC when we have taken a spinlock.

Mitch cleans up several info messages to not include the memory
addresses being used on the off chance this information could be used

Alan provides several fixes to the broadcast filters starting with the
triggering of overflow promiscuous in circumstances where we run out of
space for broadcast filters to prevent traffic from being unexpectedly
dropped.  Refactored the code to improve the readability and
maintainability when we are concerned about when and how overflow
promiscuous is changed.

Harshitha cleans up a message to make it more clear on what is being
reset, so users are not confused and think the PF is resetting.

Dave fixes an issue where the MAC, firmware version and NPAR checks used
to determine if shutting off the firmware LLDP engine is supported or
not, instead set a hardware flag which ethtool can use.

Jake updates the VF driver to use __dev_uc_sync and __dev_mc_sync, like
the PF driver.

The following are changes since commit 8c2ceabe99e04005cadba739856eed6953a8a3af:
  net/ipv4: Unexport fib_multipath_hash and fib_select_path
and are available in the git repository at:
  git:// 40GbE
