While testing KNI with netvsc, saw lots of places more code
could be safely removed from KNI kernel driver.

v6 - more updates to documentation
v5 - add minimal ethtool, fix checkpath author complaints
v4 - add more style fixes
v3 - rebase to current master, add style fix patch
v2 - get rid of unnecessary padding, combine the unused field patches

Stephen Hemminger (9):
  kni: don't need stubs for rx_mode or ioctl
  kni: use netdev_alloc_skb
  kni: don't keep stats in kni_net
  kni: drop unused fields
  kni: use proper type for kni fifo's
  kni: return -EFAULT if copy_from_user fails
  kni: fix style issues
  kni: add minimal ethtool
  doc: update KNI documentation
