While testing KNI with netvsc, saw lots of places more code
could be safely removed from KNI kernel driver.

This is still mostly "putting lipstick on a pig" all users
would be better off using virtio_user rather than KNI.

v3 - more style cleanups in last patch
v2 - get rid of unnecessary padding, combine the unused field patches

Stephen Hemminger (8):
  kni: don't need stubs for rx_mode or ioctl
  kni: use netdev_alloc_skb
  kni: don't keep stats in kni_net
  kni: drop unused fields
  kni: use proper type for kni fifo's
  kni: return -EFAULT if copy_from_user fails
  doc: update KNI documentation
  kni: fix style issues
