    I do agree it only does something which we do manually with a lot of the
    other members, however i'm not quite sure wether the compatibility thing
    still holds since a number of drivers have a lot of 2.5 specific stuff
    (e.g. pci-dma api changes). Regardless, here is a typical use in a

    /* dev and dev->priv zeroed in alloc_etherdev */
    dev = alloc_etherdev (sizeof (*tp));
    if (dev == NULL) {
    printk (KERN_ERR PFX "%s: Unable to alloc new net device\n", pdev->slot_name);
    return -ENOMEM;
    tp = dev->priv;

    /* followed by ... */
    dev->foo = __foo;
    dev->bar = __bar;
