Subject: [PATCH net-next 00/11] bnxt_en: net-next updates.

This series starts off with the usual update of the firmware interface
spec.  A new firmware status bit in the interface will be used in patch
#4 to perform recovery on some SoC platforms.  Patches #2 and #3 first
add the infrastructure to read the firmware status very early during
driver probe and this will allow patch #4 to do the recovery if needed.

The rest of the patches add improvements to the current RX reset
logic by localizing the reset to the affected RX ring only and to
reset only if firmware has determined that the RX ring is in permanent
error state.

EdwinePeer (3):
  bnxt_en: refactor bnxt_alloc_fw_health()
  bnxt_en: log firmware status on firmware init failure
  bnxt_en: perform no master recovery during startup

Michael Chan (7):
  bnxt_en: Log FW health status info, if reset is aborted.
  bnxt_en: Refactor bnxt_free_rx_skbs().
  bnxt_en: Refactor bnxt_init_one_rx_ring().
  bnxt_en: Implement RX ring reset in response to buffer errors.
  bnxt_en: Add a software counter for RX ring reset.
  bnxt_en: Reduce unnecessary message log during RX errors.
  bnxt_en: Eliminate unnecessary RX resets.

Vasundhara Volam (1):
  bnxt_en: Update firmware interface spec to
