Hi Jeff,

I just tried the same patch on Dave's latest linux-net and it applies
cleanly. Wondering if I should clone your tree and make sure it applies?
If so, I may need to do same for all my future patches as well, thats a
extra bit of work!

Most of the time, mine are bug fixes and I always use linux-net when
upstreaming my patches for Intel Ethernet drivers.
