net sfc: Update sfc and sfc_resource driver to latest release

...and update sfc_netfront, sfc_netback, sfc_netutil for any API changes

sfc_netback: Fix asymmetric use of SFC buffer table alloc and free
sfc_netback: Clean up if no SFC accel device found
sfc_netback: Gracefully handle case where page grant fails
sfc_netback: Disable net acceleration if the physical link goes down
sfc_netfront: Less verbose error messages, more verbose counters for
rx discard errors
sfc_netfront: Gracefully handle case where SFC netfront fails during

2 initramfs_data includes the compressed binary that is the
3 filesystem used for early user space.
4 Note: Older versions of "as" (prior to binutils
5 released on 2001-07-14) dit not support .incbin.
6 If you are forced to use older binutils than that then the
7 following trick can be applied to create the resulting binary:
10 ld -m elf_i386 --format binary --oformat elf32-i386 -r \
11 -T initramfs_data.scr initramfs_data.cpio.gz -o initramfs_data.o
12 ld -m elf_i386 -r -o built-in.o initramfs_data.o
14 initramfs_data.scr looks like this:
16 {
17 .init.ramfs : { *(.data) }
18 }
20 The above example is for i386 - the parameters vary from architectures.
21 Eventually look up LDFLAGS_BLOB in an older version of the
22 arch/$(ARCH)/Makefile to see the flags used before .incbin was introduced.
24 Using .incbin has the advantage over ld that the correct flags are set
25 in the ELF header, as required by certain architectures.
