Hello Joao, David.
Regardless of the outcome of the "to rename or not to rename"
discussion, I think that merging this patch would be a good thing.
Joao's dwc_eth_qos glue layer has been merged to stmmac,
so it should now be safe to remove the dwc_eth_qos driver.
It's much better if everyone is focusing on a single driver.
