-David Miller has networking fixes:

1) The new code that adds new flushing semantics to GRO can cause
SKB pointer list corruption, manage the lists differently to
avoid the OOPS. Fix from Eric Dumazet.

2) When TCP fast open does a retransmit of data in a SYN-ACK or
similar, we update retransmit state that we shouldn’t triggering
a WARN_ON later. Fix from Yuchung Cheng.
