Merge branch 'qlcnic-enhancements'

Shahed Shaikh says:

qlcnic: enhancements

This series adds few enhancements.

  o Patch from Harish reorders the sequence of header files inclusion,
    keeping kernel's header files on top.

  o Firmware introduced a new feature which allows driver to increases
    the size of firmware dump of iSCSI function which is being collected
    by NIC driver.

  o Print buffer address which is holding a firmware dump.

  o Use vzalloc() instead kzalloc() for allocating large chunk of memory
    which will avoid potential memory allocation failure.

  o Add new device ID for 0x8C30 which is a 83xx series based VF function.

Please apply this series to net-next.
