Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net
Pull networking fixes from David Miller: 1) New sysctl ndisc_notify needs some documentation, from Hanns Frederic Sowa. 2) Netfilter REJECT target doesn't set transport header of SKB correctly, from Mukund Jampala. 3) Forcedeth driver needs to check for DMA mapping failures, from Larry Finger. 4) brcmsmac driver can't use usleep_range while holding locks, use udelay instead. From Niels Ole Salscheider. 5) Fix unregister of netlink bridge multicast database handlers, from Vlad Yasevich and Rami Rosen. 6) Fix checksum calculations in netfilter's ipv6 network prefix translation module. 7) Fix high order page allocation failures in netfilter xt_recent, from Eric Dumazet. 8) mac802154 needs to use netif_rx_ni() instead of netif_rx() because mac802154_process_data() can execute in process rather than interrupt context. From Alexander Aring. 9) Fix splice handling of MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST, otherwise we elide one tcp_push() too many. From Eric Dumazet and Willy Tarreau. 10) Fix skb->truesize tracking in XEN netfront driver, from Ian Campbell. * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (46 commits) xen/netfront: improve truesize tracking ipv4: fix NULL checking in devinet_ioctl() tcp: fix MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST logic net/ipv4/ipconfig: really display the BOOTP/DHCP server's address. ip-sysctl: fix spelling errors mac802154: fix NOHZ local_softirq_pending 08 warning ipv6: document ndisc_notify in networking/ip-sysctl.txt ath9k: Fix Kconfig for ATH9K_HTC netfilter: xt_recent: avoid high order page allocations netfilter: fix missing dependencies for the NOTRACK target netfilter: ip6t_NPT: fix IPv6 NTP checksum calculation bridge: add empty br_mdb_init() and br_mdb_uninit() definitions. vxlan: allow live mac address change bridge: Correctly unregister MDB rtnetlink handlers brcmfmac: fix parsing rsn ie for ap mode. brcmsmac: add copyright information for Canonical rtlwifi: rtl8723ae: Fix warning for unchecked pci_map_single() call rtlwifi: rtl8192se: Fix warning for unchecked pci_map_single() call rtlwifi: rtl8192de: Fix warning for unchecked pci_map_single() call rtlwifi: rtl8192ce: Fix warning for unchecked pci_map_single() call ...
