    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,
    Nicholas Harring
