Default Lucid request update: sfc driver

Please update the sfc driver to the version in 2.6.33-rc3. This adds
support for the SFC9000 family of 10G Ethernet adapters. Note that
there are a very large number of changes in the driver after 2.6.32;
most of these were refactoring required in preparation for the addition
of new hardware support.

A small number of changes to sfc depend on these networking core changes
relative to 2.6.32:

gro: Change all receive functions to return GRO result codes

I don't have a public git tree that you can pull from, but I can prepare
one if you need it.

If you are not prepared to apply the networking core changes, I can
prepare a version of the sfc driver that does not depend on them.

Have a look at 'git://kernel.ubuntu.com/rtg/ubuntu-lucid sfc' and see if
you think I've done it right.

I think the 3 core networking patches are benign.

That would be 'git://kernel.ubuntu.com/rtg/ubuntu-lucid.git sfc'

That looks right to me, and passes some basic testing. Thanks a lot!

There are a couple more bug fixes on the way; shall I ping you when they
appear in an rc?

Yes - I would not normally notice upstream sfc updates (unless they
trickled down via stable).

Doh! never mind. These commits likely won't apply to a 2.6.32 kernel.

Only one of them is applicable and will need to be applied to a
different file.
