SubjectRe: Tcp/ip offload card driver
Obviously some form of driver is necessary to access the device, whether 
or not we're pushing fully formed IP packets or raw payload. Or is that
a userland problem and I'm just not understanding the flow from
userspace through the kernel and to the driver properly?

Cheers,
