Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/6] l2tp: miscellaneous cleanups

This series of patches makes the following cleanups and improvements to
the l2tp code:
 * various API tweaks to remove unused parameters from function calls
 * lightly refactor the l2tp transmission path to capture more error
   conditions in the data plane statistics
 * repurpose the "magic feather" validation in l2tp to check for
   sk_user_data (ab)use as opposed to refcount debugging
 * remove some duplicated code

Tom Parkin (6):
  l2tp: remove header length param from l2tp_xmit_skb
  l2tp: drop data_len argument from l2tp_xmit_core
  l2tp: drop net argument from l2tp_tunnel_create
  l2tp: capture more tx errors in data plane stats
  l2tp: make magic feather checks more useful
  l2tp: avoid duplicated code in l2tp_tunnel_closeall
