> this series of patches adds new hardware features to macb driver. These
> features can be enabled/disabled at runtime using ethtool. Depending on
> hardware and design configuration, some are enabled by default whereas other
> are disabled.
> For instance, checksum offload features are enabled by default for gem designed
> for packet buffer mode but disabled for fifo mode design or for old macb.
> Besides, the scatter-gather feature is enabled and tested on macb but disabled
> on sama5d3x gem. When testing this feature on sama5d3x gem, TX lockups occured
> frequently.
> Also, the RX checksum offload feature is enabled at GEM level only when both
> IFF_PROMISC bit is clear in dev->flags and NETIF_F_RXCSUM bit is set in
> dev->features.
> These patches were made for net-next.git repository.

Series applied, thanks.
