Subject[PATCH net v5 0/5] forcedeth: minor fixes for stats, rmmod, sparse
Date
This is a minor update over v4, re-adding a patch I left aside to
study it.

Changes since v4:
- added patch 1/5 fixing a rmmod race (see description for test
details)
- all other patches identical to v4

Changes since v3:
- removed feature additions, this leaves minor sparse and stats
fixes. Feature additions shipped previously will go to net-next

Changes since v2:
- removed "Fix a race during rmmod of forcedeth" from the series
(will look at it separately with original author)
- added "remove unneeded stats updates" and "64-bit stats"
- reordered patches

Changes since v1:
- rebased on top of netdev tip
- do not repeat name of device in netdev_dbg
- do not completely mute TX timeout messages when debug_tx_timeout is
not set
- make debug_tx_timeout writable in /sys/module
Note: I am re-submitting "expose module parameters in /sys/module" as
it can be useful in production and I was assured it doesn't add
much memory overhead by the sysfs maintainers.

Tested:
16-way x86_64 SMP, dual forcedeth ->
RX bytes:7244556582 (7.2 GB) TX bytes:181904254 (181.9 MB)
