Ben Hutchings - Dec. 15, 2011, 11:56 p.m.
All drivers that support modification of the RX flow hash indirection
table initialise it in the same way: RX rings are assigned to table
entries in rotation.  Make that default policy explicit by having them
call a ethtool_rxfh_indir_default() function.

In the ethtool core, add support for a zero size value for
ETHTOOL_SRXFHINDIR, which resets the table to this default.

The bnx2x, cxgb4 and vmxnet3 changes are compile-tested only.

Ben.

Looks good. Thanks for working on this.

Applied.

                          ^^^

Trailing whitespace I had to fixup while applying this, just FYI.
