Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net
Pull networking fixes from David Miller: 1) mlx4 doesn't check fully for supported valid RSS hash function, fix from Amir Vadai 2) Off by one in ibmveth_change_mtu(), from David Gibson 3) Prevent altera chip from reporting false error interrupts in some circumstances, from Chee Nouk Phoon 4) Get rid of that stupid endless loop trying to allocate a FIN packet in TCP, and in the process kill deadlocks. From Eric Dumazet 5) Fix get_rps_cpus() crash due to wrong invalid-cpu value, also from Eric Dumazet 6) Fix two bugs in async rhashtable resizing, from Thomas Graf 7) Fix topology server listener socket namespace bug in TIPC, from Ying Xue 8) Add some missing HAS_DMA kconfig dependencies, from Geert Uytterhoeven 9) bgmac driver intends to force re-polling but does so by returning the wrong value from it's ->poll() handler. Fix from Rafał Miłecki 10) When the creater of an rhashtable configures a max size for it, don't bark in the logs and drop insertions when that is exceeded. Fix from Johannes Berg 11) Recover from out of order packets in ppp mppe properly, from Sylvain Rochet * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (41 commits) bnx2x: really disable TPA if 'disable_tpa' option is set net:treewide: Fix typo in drivers/net net/mlx4_en: Prevent setting invalid RSS hash function mdio-mux-gpio: use new gpiod_get_array and gpiod_put_array functions netfilter; Add some missing default cases to switch statements in nft_reject. ppp: mppe: discard late packet in stateless mode ppp: mppe: sanity error path rework net/bonding: Make DRV macros private net: rfs: fix crash in get_rps_cpus() altera tse: add support for fixed-links. pxa168: fix double deallocation of managed resources net: fix crash in build_skb() net: eth: altera: Resolve false errors from MSGDMA to TSE ehea: Fix memory hook reference counting crashes net/tg3: Release IRQs on permanent error net: mdio-gpio: support access that may sleep inet: fix possible panic in reqsk_queue_unlink() rhashtable: don't attempt to grow when at max_size bgmac: fix requests for extra polling calls from NAPI tcp: avoid looping in tcp_send_fin() ...
