    netdevice: safe convert to netdev_priv() #part-1 · 454d7c9b
    Wang Chen authored
    We have some reasons to kill netdev->priv:
    1. netdev->priv is equal to netdev_priv().
    2. netdev_priv() wraps the calculation of netdev->priv's offset, obviously
       netdev_priv() is more flexible than netdev->priv.
    But we cann't kill netdev->priv, because so many drivers reference to it
    This patch is a safe convert for netdev->priv to netdev_priv(netdev).
    Since all of the netdev->priv is only for read.
    But it is too big to be sent in one mail.
    I split it to 4 parts and make every part smaller than 100,000 bytes,
    which is max size allowed by vger.
