Subject[BETA-0.97] Eigth test release of Tigon3 driver
From

From the usual location:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/davem/TIGON3/tg3-0.97.patch.gz

Changes in this release:

[FIX] Lots of VLAN layer fixes from Chris Leech.
[FIX] Fix a bug in Tigon3 fibre negotiation state machine
where it could run forever. Reported by Erik Habbinga.
[FIX] Do not lose network statistics around down/up of interface
for Tigon3. Broadcom's driver has this bug too.
[FIX] Small bug fix for PHY setup on 5703 A1 revisions.
[FEATURE] Add many new tunables, via ethtool, to Tigon3
for controlling:
1) Coelaescing, interrupt mitigation
2) RX/TX ring sizes
3) Pause flow control settings
4) RX/TX checksumming and scatter-gather
Please note that these new bits have not been
added to Jeff's ethtool userland tool but they
will be added soon.

I'm probably going to bump the version to 1.0 and push this to Marcelo
for 2.4.x in the next couple of days. Jeff has already included this
driver (and I the VLAN layer stuff) into 2.5.x

Enjoy.
