Subject: [Intel-wired-lan] [PATCH] ixgbe: add flow control ethertype to the anti-spoofing filter

This patch makes sure that flow control packets initiated by the VF are dropped and reported as spoofed.

Flow control packets can be used to limit the throughput or as DOS attack when generated from a VF. Flow control is not supported per VF hence any pause frames generated from a VF are considered malicious.

Also cleaned up indentation and some redundant comments.
