BTW, there are two regression fixes for forcedeth:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121894389018584&w=4
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121917167232014&w=4

that fix the regressions tracked as:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11358
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11361

respectively and both are more than 2 weeks old now.

Is there any chance to push them upstream or is there anything wrong with them?

Thanks,
Rafael
