We'll wait to give a chance for Russell, Andrew and others to review,
but this patch looks like a fix and the other ones look like features.
You should post the fix separately so it's included in Linus'es tree
ASAP (mark the patch with [PATCH net]), and the rest of the patches can
wait for the next merge window (mark [PATCH net-next]). Fixes should
also have an appropriate Fixes tag pointing at the first commit where
the bug was present.
