This patch contains the following linux kernel feature:

Summary:
qeth new function: Linux NCP CDLC support via OSA.
Description:
This qeth enhancement provides the device driver support for the Communication Controller for Linux on System z9 and zSeries (CCL), which is software that enables running the Network Control Program (NCP) on a System z9 or zSeries machine. The OSA CDLC support of IBM System z9 is based on a new IBM mainframe CHPID type called Open Systems Adaper for NCP (OSN). In case of OSN qeth communicates with the type-OSN OSA-card on one hand, and with the CCL-kernel-component Network Device Handler (NDH) on the other.

Everybody should apply this patch.
