Hi all,

Previous patch series [1-4] addressed issues with IGC filtering support
individually (MAC address, VLAN priority, and ethertype filtering). This
patch series fixes issues with the Network Flow Classification (NFC)
support, which is built on top of those individual filters.

This series is organized as follows:

    * Initial patches (1 to 4) do trivial code cleanup like remove unused
      code, useless wrappers, simplify logic, etc.

    * Midsection patches (5 to 8) refactor the NFC support code to improve
      code reuse and organization. It also makes some upcoming bug fixes

    * The rest of the series (9 to 19) fixes multiple bugs related to rules
      insertion, overwrite, and restoration as well as other issues like
      memory leak and locking.

Best regards,
