Subject: [net-next v4 6/9] ice: cleanup misleading comment

From: Bruce Allan <>

The maximum Admin Queue buffer size and NVM shadow RAM sector size are both
4 Kilobytes. Some comments refer to those as 4Kb which can be confused with
4 Kilobits. Update the comments to use the commonly used KB symbol instead.
