Subjectdl2k/stmmac patches (was Re: [PATCH 2/2] net/dl2k: Don't reconfigure link @100Mbps when disabling autoneg @1Gbps)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

An update on the patch series I posted earlier (dl2k/stmmac autoneg
minor changes: see my posts on 05/09/11 17:19 PST)...

I'd suggest dropping the patch concerning dl2k, as I don't have any way
to claim it's any good at all (though I'm pretty confident it doesn't
make things any worse).

However, for the other patch of the same series (stmmac), please
consider for inclusion the new version prepared by Giuseppe instead of
my initial patch, for his version readily integrates my patch and has
been tested on real hardware:
stmmac: don't go through ethtool to start auto-negotiation
stmmac: fix autoneg in set_pauseparam

Regards,
Thank you!
