Pull networking fixes from David Miller: "It looks like a sizeble collection but this is nearly 3 weeks of bug fixing while you were away. 1) Fix crashes over IPSEC tunnels with NAT, the latter can reroute the packet through a non-IPSEC protected path and the code has to be able to handle SKBs attached to routes lacking an attached xfrm state. From Steffen Klassert. 2) Fix OOPSs in ipv4 and ipv6 ipsec layers for unsupported sub-protocols, also from Steffen Klassert. 3) Set local_df on fragmented netfilter skbs otherwise we won't be able to forward successfully, from Florian Westphal. 4) cdc_mbim ipv6 neighbour code does __vlan_find_dev_deep without holding RCU lock, from Bjorn Mork. 5) local_df test in ip_may_fragment is inverted, from Florian Westphal. 6) jme driver doesn't check for DMA mapping failures, from Neil Horman. 7) qlogic driver doesn't calculate number of TX queues properly, from Shahed Shaikh. 8) fib_info_cnt can drift irreversibly positive if we fail to allocate the fi->fib_metrics array, from Sergey Popovich. 9) Fix use after free in ip6_route_me_harder(), also from Sergey Popovich. 10) When SYSCTL is disabled, we don't handle local_port_range and ping_group_range defaults properly at all, from Cong Wang. 11) Unaccelerated VLAN tagged frames improperly handled by cdc_mbim driver, fix from Bjorn Mork. 12) cassini driver needs nested lock annotations for TX locking, from Emil Goode. 13) On init error ipv6 VTI driver can unregister pernet ops twice, oops. Fix from Mahtias Krause. 14) If macvlan device is down, don't propagate IFF_ALLMULTI changes, from Peter Christensen. 15) Missing NULL pointer check while parsing netlink config options in ip6_tnl_validate(). From Susant Sahani. 16) Fix handling of neighbour entries during ipv6 router reachability probing, from Duan Jiong. 17) x86 and s390 JIT address randomization has some address calculation bugs leading to crashes, from Alexei Starovoitov and Heiko Carstens. 18) Clear up those uglies with nop patching and net_get_random_once(), from Hannes Frederic Sowa. 19) Option length miscalculated in ip6_append_data(), fix also from Hannes Frederic Sowa. 20) A while ago we fixed a race during device unregistry when a namespace went down, turns out there is a second place that needs similar protection. From Cong Wang. 21) In the new Altera TSE driver multicast filtering isn't working, disable it and just use promisc mode until the cause is found. From Vince Bridgers. 22) When we disable router enabling in ipv6 we have to flush the cached routes explicitly, from Duan Jiong. 23) NBMA tunnels should not cache routes on the tunnel object because the key is variable, from Timo Teräs. 24) With stacked devices GRO information in skb->cb[] can be not setup properly, make sure it is in all code paths. From Eric Dumazet. 25) Really fix stacked vlan locking, multiple levels of nesting with intervening non-vlan devices are possible. From Vlad Yasevich. 26) Fallback ipip tunnel device's mtu is not setup properly, from Steffen Klassert. 27) The packet scheduler's tcindex filter can crash because we structure copy objects with list_head's inside, oops. From Cong Wang. 28) Fix CHECKSUM_COMPLETE handling for ipv6 GRE tunnels, from Eric Dumazet. 29) In some configurations 'itag' in __mkroute_input() can end up being used uninitialized because of how fib_validate_source() works. Fix it by explitly initializing itag to zero like all the other fib_validate_source() callers do, from Li RongQing" * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (116 commits) batman: fix a bogus warning from batadv_is_on_batman_iface() ipv4: initialise the itag variable in __mkroute_input bonding: Send ALB learning packets using the right source bonding: Don't assume 802.1Q when sending alb learning packets. net: doc: Update references to skb->rxhash stmmac: Remove unbalanced clk_disable call ipv6: gro: fix CHECKSUM_COMPLETE support net_sched: fix an oops in tcindex filter can: peak_pci: prevent use after free at netdev removal ip_tunnel: Initialize the fallback device properly vlan: Fix build error wth vlan_get_encap_level() can: c_can: remove obsolete STRICT_FRAME_ORDERING Kconfig option MAINTAINERS: Pravin Shelar is Open vSwitch maintainer. bnx2x: Convert return 0 to return rc bonding: Fix alb mode to only use first level vlans. bonding: Fix stacked device detection in arp monitoring macvlan: Fix lockdep warnings with stacked macvlan devices vlan: Fix lockdep warning with stacked vlan devices. net: Allow for more then a single subclass for netif_addr_lock net: Find the nesting level of a given device by type. ...
