Lots of small fixes for bugs that have accumulated over the past few
days. The largest part of the diffstat are the two gcc-3.4 build
fixes, wherein inline functions are moved above their call sites.

1) The TPROXY folks found two cases where the key for an ipv4 routing
lookup is not filled in completely, and this breaks things. Fixes
from Balazs Scheidler.

2) ixgbe and phonet don't build with gcc-3.4 due to some inlining stupidity.
Fixes from Alexey Dobriyan.

3) ATL2 requests device IRQ on resume even if the device has not been brought
up yet, this causes serious problems because the IRQ is only requested
on interface up. Fix from Alan Jenkins.

4) /proc/net/snmp6 uses a local 32-byte char buffer for string formatting,
but it marks this thing static so if two threads grab this file at the
same time they can see some garbage. Fix by simply dropping the static
tag, from Alexey Dobriyan.

5) ip_mr_init() error path release objects wrongly, from Banjamin Thery.
We already fixed the ipv6 side of this recently.

6) JME and IPG driver endiannes bug fixes from Harvey Harrison.

7) Some ipv6 procfs implementations use seq_open_private() but accidently
use plain seq_release(), which leaks memory. Fix by using
seq_release_private(), from Benjamin Thery.

8) If we try to fire off linkwatch events before a networking device is even
registered, we can deadlock and do other stupid things. Just elide the
linkwatch events in such cases. This happens when a device driver is simply
interested in setting the initial carrier state to off.

Kudos to Jarek P. for doing the initial investigation of the user reports,
and initial suggested patch.

9) Wireless bug fixes via John Linville, including a fix from
Johannes Berg for a locking issue that users have been reporting
for quite some time.

10) qdisc_dump_stab() doesn't check return values, and therefore can OOPS if
the SKB being filled is full. From Patrick McHardy.

11) asix cards don't work on 10/100Mb networks because of incorrect bits being
set in a config register, from Pantelis Koukousoulas.

12) pktgen incorrectly chokes when the device has more queues than there are
cpus in the system. Fix from Robert Olsson.

13) phylib's auto-negotiation restart avoidance added recently is too aggressive,
and breaks with certain chips. Fix from Trent Piepho.

14) mii_bus interfaces changed and this slightly broke the sh_eth driver. Fix from
Nobuhiro Iwamatsu.

15) Two bug fixes for mv643xx_eth from Lennert Buytenhek. mdiobus release ops
are done in wrong order, and SKB recycle check uses too small length causing
RX packet overrun scribbling past the end of the SKB.

Please pull, thanks a lot!
