Hi Arnd

The work done to cleanup drivers/net/ethernet was mostly done by an
Intel team. When built for ARM there are few warnings left, mostly due
to missing COMPILE_TEST. I have fixes for that.

But this raises the question, can we be a bit more tolerant of
warnings for not x86 to start with? 0-day should help us weed out the
remaining warnings on other architectures.

As for the plan, it looks O.K. to me. I can definitely help with
driver/net and net.
