Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net
Pull networking fixes from David Miller: 1) Always increment IPV4 ID field in encapsulated GSO packets, even when DF is set. Regression fix from Pravin B Shelar. 2) Fix per-net subsystem initialization in netfilter conntrack, otherwise we may access dynamically allocated memory before it is actually allocated. From Gao Feng. 3) Fix DMA buffer lengths in iwl3945 driver, from Stanislaw Gruszka. 4) Fix race between submission of sync vs async commands in mwifiex driver, from Amitkumar Karwar. 5) Add missing cancel of command timer in mwifiex driver, from Bing Zhao. 6) Missing SKB free in rtlwifi USB driver, from Jussi Kivilinna. 7) Thermal layer tries to use a genetlink multicast string that is longer than the 16 character limit. Fix it and add a BUG check to prevent this kind of thing from happening in the future. From Masatake YAMATO. 8) Fix many bugs in the handling of the teardown of L2TP connections, UDP encapsulation instances, and sockets. From Tom Parkin. 9) Missing socket release in IRDA, from Kees Cook. 10) Fix fec driver modular build, from Fabio Estevam. 11) Erroneous use of kfree() instead of free_netdev() in lantiq_etop, from Wei Yongjun. 12) Fix bugs in handling of queue numbers and steering rules in mlx4 driver, from Moshe Lazer, Hadar Hen Zion, and Or Gerlitz. 13) Some FOO_DIAG_MAX constants were defined off by one, fix from Andrey Vagin. 14) TCP segmentation deferral is unintentionally done too strongly, breaking ACK clocking. Fix from Eric Dumazet. 15) net_enable_timestamp() can legitimately be invoked from software interrupts, and in a way that is safe, so remove the WARN_ON(). Also from Eric Dumazet. 16) Fix use after free in VLANs, from Cong Wang. 17) Fix TCP slow start retransmit storms after SACK reneging, from Yuchung Cheng. 18) Unix socket release should mark a socket dead before NULL'ing out sock->sk, otherwise we can race. Fix from Paul Moore. 19) IPV6 addrconf code can try to free static memory, from Hong Zhiguo. 20) Fix register mis-programming, NULL pointer derefs, and wrong PHC clock frequency in IGB driver. From Lior LevyAlex Williamson, Jiri Benc, and Jeff Kirsher. 21) skb->ip_summed logic in pch_gbe driver is reversed, breaking packet forwarding. Fix from Veaceslav Falico. * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (65 commits) ipv4: Fix ip-header identification for gso packets. bonding: remove already created master sysfs link on failure af_unix: dont send SCM_CREDENTIAL when dest socket is NULL pch_gbe: fix ip_summed checksum reporting on rx igb: fix PHC stopping on max freq igb: make sensor info static igb: SR-IOV init reordering igb: Fix null pointer dereference igb: fix i350 anti spoofing config ixgbevf: don't release the soft entries ipv6: fix bad free of addrconf_init_net unix: fix a race condition in unix_release() tcp: undo spurious timeout after SACK reneging bnx2x: fix assignment of signed expression to unsigned variable bridge: fix crash when set mac address of br interface 8021q: fix a potential use-after-free net: remove a WARN_ON() in net_enable_timestamp() tcp: preserve ACK clocking in TSO net: fix *_DIAG_MAX constants net/mlx4_core: Disallow releasing VF QPs which have steering rules ...
