Merge conflicts are a way of life in Documentation/ - everybody messes
with it. They are usually pretty easy to resolve.

I only see a handful of references to netdev-FAQ.txt in the tree; I would
suggest just making the change and being done with it. There shouldn't be
any need to do a more complicated dance than that.

And to answer your other question, yes of course it's fine (and expected)
for this to go through Dave's tree.
