Hi Salil,

I've chatted with Dave Miller about this series. Here's where we stand.

First, the review feedback from Dave:


In patch #7, their comments are mis-formatted and these
hns guys do this a lot.

/*fix hardware broadcast/multicast packets queue loopback */

They seem to have a hard time putting an initial space in the comment,
and properly capitalizing and punctuating their sentences.

Also in that new function, they need to order local variables from
longest to shortest line (reverse christmas tree format).

Patch #6 has the local variable ordering issue as well as does patch


Please address those issues and resubmit.

As for the method of resubmission, please send the set to netdev@ and
also linux-rdma@, make note that, as a one off thing, these will need to
go through my tree to avoid conflicts with patches already in my tree,
and that future submissions will follow the Mellanox model of submitting
shared code to both mine and David's tree that is needed to avoid
conflicts for that merge window's submissions. After the netdev people
have reviewed it, and Dave acks it, either he can pick it up and sort
the conflicts out, or I can pick it up.
