SubjectPatch for eth[4-7]
Date

Every time I get a new kernel I have to patch
drivers/net/Space.c to support more than 4 ethernet devices (I have a
Linux box with six NE2000's), and I think it would be a good idea to
include the following patch in the standard kernel to help any of us
with a Linux acting as a router.

It's against pre2.0.9 but should work with any kernel as this
hasn't been changed for ages :)
