    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)
