  Ubuntu 18.04 - Include latest ibmvnic fixes in Ubuntu kernel

Bug description:
  We have a number of patches to submit to Canonical for inclusion in
  the their release kernel for Ubuntu 18.04.

  So far, most of these patches are upstream in Linus' tree, with some
  in Dave M's net-next tree.  According to the ubuntu-bionic tree, the
  latest patch included is 8388a6cf ("ibmvnic: Set state UP").  If
  that's true, we'll need about 15 or more patches.  There may be more
  coming down the pipe soon as well.

  Here is a tentative patch list with commit hash and name:

  1. 69d08dc Allocate and request vpd in init_resources
  2. e791380 Revert to previous mtu when unsupported value requested
  3. 896d869 Modify buffer size and number of queues on failover
  4. a0dca10 Fix IPv6 packet descriptors
  5. f689794 Fix IP offload control buffer
  6. 3d16613 Fix pending MAC address changes
  7. 09fb35ead58c Don't handle RX interrupts when not up
  8. 4eb50ceb5c15 Include header descriptor support for ARP packets
  9. 269431e737d2 Increase maximum number of RX/TX queues
  11. f743106ec140 fix dma_mapping_error call
  12. 4e6759be28e4 Feature implementation of Vital Product Data (VPD)?
  13. 37798d021131 Add vnic client data to login buffer
  14. 2a1bf5111197 Fix failover error path for non-fatal resets
  15. c26eba03e407 Update reset infrastructure to support tunable parameters
  16. aa0bf8510dac Let users change net device features
  17. fdb061056f57 Enable TSO support
  18. 154820563dd4 Enable scatter-gather support

  These should apply cleanly, but I'll check on that.


  Here is a tarball of patches.  I also included this patch:

  Additional patches that we would like to have included:
  ("[PATCH net-next] ibmvnic: queue reset when CRQ gets closed during reset")
