Here is the summary with links:
  - [v3,net,1/4] net: bonding: replace dev_trans_start() with the jiffies of the last ARP/NS
  - [v3,net,2/4] net/sched: remove hacks added to dev_trans_start() for bonding to work
  - [v3,net,3/4] Revert "veth: Add updating of trans_start"
  - [v3,net,4/4] docs: net: bonding: remove mentions of trans_start

You are awesome, thank you!
