Jeff Kirsher says: ==================== Intel Wired LAN Driver Updates 2015-03-07 This series contains updates to i40e and i40evf only. Most notably, Greg provides the patch to remove the dreaded configfs changes in the driver. Shannon cleans up a sparse warning by simply straighting out the code so it is less convoluted. Fixes an issue where the vector allocation was trying too hard to save vectors for VMDq, to the point of not giving the PF enough when in a tight situation, such as an NPAR partition. Changed the driver to make sure that the PF will get all the queues and vectors it wants to fill out its destiny. Cleans up reporting to only print the port and VEB stats if it is the first partition of a multiplexed port. Catherine cleans up some duplicated code by simply removing the duplicate code. Kamil cleans up the driver by removing an un-needed endian conversion because it is already done by a register read function. Jesse fixes a variable width of a datatype, where a u16 should have been a u32. Also cleans up debug_read_register() to resolve some sparse warnings. Updates the driver to use prefetch() to get the next Tx descriptor, like in ixgbe, to improve performance. Akeem moves around code to enable/disable loopback so that other non-SRIOV supported driver functions can take advantage of the changes. Anjali cleans up the logging for adding/deleting FD-SB filters, since ethtool shows all the filters on an interface. Updates the driver to use l4_tunnel type generically to keep code flow simple. Simplifies the RSS code since the driver initializes the rss_size_max in sw_init. ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org>
