    Look at drivers/net/tulip/* in 2.4.x kernels. And submit patches, if
    you have an idea :)

    For 2.2.x, I am pretty much staying away from tulip.c. For most
    chipsets it is rock solid stable, and I have no desire to change it...
    For a few new or really elcheapo NIC, you need Don Becker's tulip.c
    replacement. Other that that, 2.2.x's tulip.c is golden.
