In commit be1f3c2c027cc5ad735df6a45a542ed1db7ec48b "net: Enable 64-bit
net device statistics on 32-bit architectures" I redefined struct
net_device_stats so that it could be used in a union with struct
rtnl_link_stats64, avoiding the need for explicit copying or
conversion between the two.  However, this is unsafe because there is
no locking required and no lock consistently held around calls to
dev_get_stats() and use of the statistics structure it returns.

In commit 28172739f0a276eb8d6ca917b3974c2edb036da3 "net: fix 64 bit
counters on 32 bit arches" Eric Dumazet dealt with that problem by
requiring callers of dev_get_stats() to provide storage for the
result.  This means that the net_device::stats64 field and the padding
in struct net_device_stats are now redundant, so remove them.

Update the comment on net_device_ops::ndo_get_stats64 to reflect its
new usage.

Change dev_txq_stats_fold() to use struct rtnl_link_stats64, since
that is what all its callers are really using and it is no longer
going to be compatible with struct net_device_stats.

Eric Dumazet suggested the separate function for the structure
conversion.
