> This a starting point for a cleanup and re-organization of stmmac.

>       2) Guaranteed function pointer check
>       3) More flexibility
> By 2) we stop using the repeated pattern of:
>       if (priv->hw->mac->some_func)
>               priv->hw->mac->some_func(...)
> I didn't check but I expect the final .ko will be bigger with this series
> because *all* of function pointers are checked.
> Anyway, I hope this can make the code more readable and more flexible now.
