The following changes since commit 8f4cccbbd92f2ad0ddbbc498ef7cee2a1c3defe9:

  net: Set device operstate at registration time (2012-08-24 12:46:13 -0400)

are available in the git repository at:
  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/bwh/sfc-next.git for-davem

(commit 8f8b3d518999fd1c342310910aa1e49112c86d05)

1. Change the TX path to stop queues earlier and avoid returning
NETDEV_TX_BUSY.
2. Remove some inefficiencies in soft-TSO.
3. Fix various bugs involving device state transitions and/or reset
scheduling by error handlers.
4. Take advantage of my previous change to operstate initialisation.
5. Miscellaneous cleanup.

Ben.

Ben Hutchings (16):
      sfc: Refactor struct efx_tx_buffer to use a flags field
      sfc: Stop TX queues before they fill up
      sfc: Simplify TSO header buffer allocation
      sfc: Replace tso_state::full_packet_space with ip_base_len
      sfc: Stash header offsets for TSO in struct tso_state
      sfc: Change state names to be clearer, and comment them
      sfc: Hold the RTNL lock for more of the suspend/resume cycle
      sfc: Keep disabled NICs quiescent during suspend/resume
      sfc: Hold RTNL lock (only) when calling efx_stop_interrupts()
      sfc: Never try to stop and start a NIC that is disabled
      sfc: Improve log messages in case we abort probe due to a pending reset
      sfc: Fix reset vs probe/remove/PM races involving efx_nic::state
      sfc: Remove overly paranoid locking assertions from netdev operations
      sfc: Remove bogus comment about MTU change and RX buffer overrun
      sfc: Assign efx and efx->type as early as possible in efx_pci_probe()
      sfc: Fix the initial device operstate

Looks good, pulled, thanks Ben.
