    Evolution is better. The new driver has lots of new callbacks to handle
    the fact it is dealing with two different chipsets. Not only that your callbacks
    are built at runtime which leads to security concerns.

    There is a reason the two Marvell based drivers (skge and sky2) are
    different drivers. Having to do extra per-chip callbacks is a clear sign
    the driver should be split in two.
