The following commit has been merged in the master branch:
commit 860e9538a9482bb84589f7d0718a7e6d0a944d58
Author: Florian Westphal <fw at strlen.de>
Date:   Tue May 3 16:33:13 2016 +0200

    treewide: replace dev->trans_start update with helper
    
    Replace all trans_start updates with netif_trans_update helper.
    change was done via spatch:
    
    struct net_device *d;
    @@
    - d->trans_start = jiffies
    + netif_trans_update(d)
    
    Compile tested only.
