[netdrvr pcnet32] bug fixes

I would like to see a couple of the pcnet32 changes that I think we can
agree on be put into the trees so a couple of the potential defects can be
avoided. The following patch contains just these pieces. The only
controversial one is an arbitrary change in the number of iterations in a
while loop spinning on hardware state. No matter how this is done, I am
not especially fond of this bit of code as it has no reasonable error
recovery path -- however, as a half-way, incremental solution, increasing
the polling time should help as the 100 value was certainly found to be
insufficient. 1000 may not be sufficient either, but it is certainly no

Both of the other changes were hit in testing (and I belive the wmb() at a
customer even), so it would help reduce some debug if these go in. Any
feedback is appreciated - thanks.

[wan lmc] remove 2.0.x-era code

The patch below removes obsolete #if'd code for kernel 2.0 and 2.2 from
drivers/net/wan/lmc/* (this includes the expansion of some #define's
that were definded differently for different kernel versions).

[netdrvr bonding] fix ABI version control problem

This fix makes bonding not commit to a specific ABI version if the ioctl
command is not supported by bonding.

(It also removes the '\n' in the continuous printk reporting the link down
event in bond_mii_monitor - it got in there by mistake in our previous
patch set and caused log messages to appear funny in some situations).

[netdrvr bonding] fix long failover in 802.3ad mode

This patch fixes the bug reported by Jay on April 3rd regarding long
failover time when releasing the last slave in the active aggregator. The
fix, as suggested by Jay, is to follow the spec recommendation and send a
LACPDU to the partner saying this port is no longer aggregatable and
therefore trigger an immediate re-selection of a new aggregator instead of
waiting the entire expiration timeout.
