Subject[BK PATCHES] net driver merges


Pull from: http://gkernel.bkbits.net/net-drivers-2.5


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeSet@1.236, 2002-02-08 18:38:05-05:00, jgarzik@rum.normnet.org
Update eepro100 net driver link state tracking:
* Initialize interface carrier state in speedo_open.
* Update previous netif_carrier_{on,off} change to use
linux/mii.h constants.

Fix natsemi net driver rx-related hang, by polling for RX events
on all RX interrupts. Prior to this fix, RX FIFO overrun and RX
buffer overrun interrupts did not trigger an RX poll; now they do.

Update tulip net driver to indicate link beat to system,
via netif_carrier_{on,off}. Some placeholders to do this were
already in the code, making this an even easier and more obvious patch.

Also, decrease time until next link beat check, if link beat
is not present. (previously the code would wait 60 seconds until
next check, regardless of current link state)

tulip net driver updates:
* Add support for Conexant tulip clones.
* Do not store eeprom data on stack (128 or 512 bytes), it's a
large object, and also, we already have a copy in kmalloc'd RAM.

Fix naming conflict with pcnet32 net driver and ethtool,
by cleaning up the pcnet32 namespace a bit.

s/PORT_/PCNET32_PORT_/ for local constants, to avoid conflicting
with linux/ethtool.h.

Add config option to enable natsemi net driver hardware bug workaround.

"some" systems with "some" cables see a large amount of errors,
due to a hardware bug. This bug is (apparently) not probe-able;
however it only appears on rare reference boards and the like,
so we simply add a config option and default the option to OFF.

Further detail:
When CONFIG_NATSEMI_CABLE_MAGIC option is enabled, PMDCSR_VAL
register value becomes 0x1898, a value provided by a NatSemi
app note. This enables a workaround for a hardware bug
which is (apparently) not probe-able. Luckily the hardware bug
is (apparently) not common either, so we default to disabling
this workaround.

Fix typo in the winbond-840 net driver which doubled
the size of the Tx data buffer list without cause.
