Subject[NET] 64 bit byte counter for 2.6.3
From
Date
Ok, Here's a patch for 64 bit byte counters for 2.6.3. For any intrested
users to try.

That means in english that the limit for RX bytes and TX bytes (in
ifconfig for example) is much higher than the old 4GB limit on 32 bit
systems.

Orginal patch by Miika Pekkarinen, ported forward from 2.5 by me.

Patch says 2.6.3-rc1, but patches cleanly on 2.6.3.
