      ====================
      Alexey Khoroshilov provides a potential memory leak in rndis_wlan.
      
      Bob Copeland gives us an ath5k fix for a lockdep problem.
      
      Dan Carpenter fixes a signedness mismatch in at76c50x.
      
      Felix Fietkau corrects a regression caused by an earlier commit that can
      lead to an IRQ storm.
      
      Lorenzo Bianconi offers a fix for a bad variable initialization in ath9k
      that can cause it to improperly mark decrypted frames.
      
      Rajkumar Manoharan fixes ath9k to prevent the btcoex time from running
      when the hardware is asleep.
      
      The remainder are Bluetooth fixes, about which Gustavo says:
      
      	"Here goes some fixes for 3.6-rc1, there are a few fix to
      	thte inquiry code by Ram Malovany, support for 2 new devices,
      	and few others fixes for NULL dereference, possible deadlock
      	and a memory leak."

      Cong Wang reports that lockdep detected suspicious RCU usage while
      enabling IPV6 forwarding:

      addrconf_forward_change() uses RCU iteration over the netdev list,
      which is unnecessary since it already holds the RTNL lock.  We also
      cannot reasonably require netdevice notifier functions not to sleep.

      drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx4/mcg.c: fix error return code · 499b95f6
      Julia Lawall authored
      Convert a 0 error return code to a negative one, as returned elsewhere in the
      function.
      
      A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
      follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/
      
      )
      
      // <smpl>
      @@
      identifier ret;
      expression e,e1,e2,e3,e4,x;
      @@
      
      (
      if (\(ret != 0\|ret < 0\) || ...) { ... return ...; }
      |
      ret = 0
      )
      ... when != ret = e1
      *x = \(kmalloc\|kzalloc\|kcalloc\|devm_kzalloc\|ioremap\|ioremap_nocache\|devm_ioremap\|devm_ioremap_nocache\)(...);
