3.11.10.1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ujjal Roy <royujjal@gmail.com>

commit 8d93f1f309d38b65fce0b9f0de91ba6c96990c07 upstream.

The eth_hdr is never defined in this driver but it gets compiled
without any warning/error because kernel has defined eth_hdr.

Fix it by defining our own p_ethhdr and use it instead of eth_hdr.
