Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/5] bnxt_en: Improve firmware flashing.

This patchset improves firmware flashing in 2 ways:

- If firmware returns NO_SPACE error during flashing, the driver will
create the UPDATE directory with more staging area and retry.
- Instead of allocating a big DMA buffer for the entire contents of
the firmware package size, fallback to a smaller buffer to DMA the
contents in multiple DMA operations.

Michael Chan (2):
  bnxt_en: Rearrange the logic in bnxt_flash_package_from_fw_obj().
  bnxt_en: Enable batch mode when using HWRM_NVM_MODIFY to flash

Pavan Chebbi (3):
  bnxt_en: Refactor bnxt_flash_nvram.
  bnxt_en: Restructure bnxt_flash_package_from_fw_obj() to execute in a
  bnxt_en: Retry installing FW package under NO_SPACE error condition.
