parentnet: rds: use this_cpu_* per-cpu helper (diff)
net/ethernet: remove useless is_valid_ether_addr from drivers ndo_open
If ndo_validate_addr is set to the generic eth_validate_addr function there is no point in calling is_valid_ether_addr from driver ndo_open if ndo_open is not used elsewhere in the driver. With this change is_valid_ether_addr will be called from the generic eth_validate_addr function. So there should be no change in the actual behavior.
