    Pull networking updates from David Millar:
     "Here are some highlights from the 2065 networking commits that
      happened this development cycle:
       1) XDP support for IXGBE (John Fastabend) and thunderx (Sunil Kowuri)
       2) Add a generic XDP driver, so that anyone can test XDP even if they
          lack a networking device whose driver has explicit XDP support
       3) Sparc64 now has an eBPF JIT too (me)
       4) Add a BPF program testing framework via BPF_PROG_TEST_RUN (Alexei
       5) Make netfitler network namespace teardown less expensive (Florian
       6) Add symmetric hashing support to nft_hash (Laura Garcia Liebana)
       7) Implement NAPI and GRO in netvsc driver (Stephen Hemminger)
       8) Support TC flower offload statistics in mlxsw (Arkadi Sharshevsky)
       9) Multiqueue support in stmmac driver (Joao Pinto)
      10) Remove TCP timewait recycling, it never really could possibly work
          well in the real world and timestamp randomization really zaps any
          hint of usability this feature had (Soheil Hassas Yeganeh)
      11) Support level3 vs level4 ECMP route hashing in ipv4 (Nikolay
      12) Add socket busy poll support to epoll (Sridhar Samudrala)
      13) Netlink extended ACK support (Johannes Berg, Pablo Neira Ayuso,
          and several others)
      14) IPSEC hw offload infrastructure (Steffen Klassert)"
