Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/8] sfc: remove nic_data usage in common code

efx->nic_data should only be used from NIC-specific code (i.e. nic_type
 functions and things they call), in files like ef10[_sriov].c and
 siena.c.  This series refactors several nic_data usages from common
 code (mainly in mcdi_filters.c) into nic_type functions, in preparation
 for the upcoming ef100 driver which will use those functions but have
 its own struct layout for efx->nic_data distinct from ef10's.
After this series, one nic_data usage (in ptp.c) remains; it wasn't
 clear to me how to fix it, and ef100 devices don't yet have PTP support
 (so the initial ef100 driver will not call that code).

Edward Cree (7):
  sfc: move vport_id to struct efx_nic
  sfc: use efx_has_cap for capability checks outside of NIC-specific
  sfc: move 'must restore' flags out of ef10-specific nic_data
  sfc: rework handling of (firmware) multicast chaining state
  sfc: move rx_rss_context_exclusive into struct efx_mcdi_filter_table
  sfc: make filter table probe caller responsible for adding VLANs
  sfc: make firmware-variant printing a nic_type function

Tom Zhao (1):
  sfc: make capability checking a nic_type function
