SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next v2 0/8] net: bcmgenet: Turn on offloads by default

> This commit stack is based on Florian's commit 4e8aedfe78c7 ("net:
> systemport: Turn on offloads by default") and enables the offloads for
> the bcmgenet driver by default.
>
> The first commit adds support for the HIGHDMA feature to the driver.
>
> The second converts the Tx checksum implementation to use the generic
> hardware logic rather than the deprecated IP centric methods.
>
> The third modifies the Rx checksum implementation to use the hardware
> offload to compute the complete checksum rather than filtering out bad
> packets detected by the hardware's IP centric implementation. This may
> increase processing load by passing bad packets to the network stack,
> but it provides for more flexible handling of packets by the network
> stack without requiring software computation of the checksum.
>
> The remaining commits mirror the extensions Florian made to the sysport
> driver to retain symmetry with that driver and to make the benefits of
> the hardware offloads more ubiquitous.

Series applied, thanks.
