Going over using KNI with netvsc, saw lots of remove
for improvment (deleting code).

This is still mostly "putting lipstick on a pig" all users
would be better off using virtio_user rather than KNI.

Stephen Hemminger (9):
  kni: don't need stubs for rx_mode or ioctl
  kni: use netdev_alloc_skb
  kni: drop unused field
  kni: don't keep stats in kni_net
  kni: drop unused group_id and device_id
  kni: drop unused status element
  kni: use proper type for kni fifo's
  kni: return -EFAULT if copy_from_user fails
  doc: update KNI documentation
