SubjectRe: zero-copy TCP

Dear Stu,

I apologize for bothering you, but how possible would it be to let the
Linux folks get access to the Nitro docs and docs for Intel ethernet
cards in general. There seems to be interest from folks in getting this
to improve Linux support for Intel products.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jeff Merkey
