Dear David, colleagues,

sorry, forgot to add netdev list.

This is the second version of patch series which adds basic support for
IEEE 802.15.4 Medium Access Control layer.

The IEEE 802.15.4 Working Group focuses on the standardization of the
bottom two layers of ISO/OSI protocol stack: Physical (PHY) and MAC.
The MAC layer provides access control to a shared channel and reliable
data delivery.

This series provide only basic features:
 - interface for drivers registration
 - RX/TX datapaths
 - reduced mlme operations
 - monitor device type support (used by network sniffers, e.g. Wireshark)
 - IEEE 802.15.4 loopback driver
 - documentation update

With best regards,
Alexander

Changes since last post:
 * lots and lots of coding style and poor formating issues
 * additional comments
 * using proper byte order (little endian)
 * locking in loopback driver
 * mac802154: allocation of ieee802154 device: using of NETDEV_ALIGN,
  reworked like for ieee80211 stack (net/mac80211/main.c)
  The reason why I use alignment of data in ieee802154 layer is because of
  there are two levels of private data: mac layer's and driver's.

The following changes since commit eb93992207dadb946a3b5cf4544957dc924a6f58:
