This patch-set includes some bugfixes and code optimizations

The code LGTM, mostly, but it certainly seems like patches 2, 3 and 4
should be a separate series targeting the net tree :(

Agreed, there are legitimate bug fixes.

I have to say that I see this happening a lot, hns3 bug fixes targetting
net-next in a larger series of cleanups and other kinds of changes.

Please handle this delegation properly. Send bug fixes as a series targetting
'net', and send everything else targetting 'net-next'.

Hi, David & Jakub.

BTW, patch01 is a cleanup which is needed by patch02,
if patch01 targetting 'net-next', patch02 targetting 'net',
there will be a gap again. How should I deal with this case?
