People don't need to patch *anything* to get the starfire driver working --
it's included in 2.2.19 and working rather well I might add. :-)

This was a special case, which btw had nothing to do with the starfire
driver itself. The user needed to support more than 8 eth ports, which
2.2 complains about, and more than 16 eth ports, which 2.2 simply doesn't
allow without further changes.


It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt.
