|parent||staging-winbond: Kill directly reference of netdev->priv (diff)|
netdevice: Kill netdev->priv
This is the last shoot of this series. After I removing all directly reference of netdev->priv, I am killing "priv" of "struct net_device" and fixing relative comments/docs. Anyone will not be allowed to reference netdev->priv directly. If you want to reference the memory of private data, use netdev_priv() instead. If the private data is not allocted when alloc_netdev(), use netdev->ml_priv to point that memory after you creating that private data.

separately allocated data is attached to the network device
