SubjectRe: rmmodding e100 trace calls on 2.6.0-test2-mm2
One of the -mm patches produces a warning which will be taken care of later when
all the network drivers are converted to dynamically allocating net_device's.
At that point, a massive patch will be needed that changes all instances of:

unregister_netdev(dev);
my cleanup...
kfree(dev); // becomes release_netdev(dev);

new release_netdev() will release the dev kobject at that point.

I have the code ready, just been waiting till all net device's converted.
Prefer not to break the world at this point.
