bool "Use Rx and Tx Polling (NAPI) (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on R8169 && EXPERIMENTAL
+ NAPI is a new driver API designed to reduce CPU and interrupt load
+ when the driver is receiving lots of packets from the card. It is
+ still somewhat experimental and thus not yet enabled by default.

+ If your estimated Rx load is 10kpps or more, or if the card will be
+ deployed on potentially unfriendly networks (e.g. in a firewall),
+ then say Y here.

+ See <file:Documentation/networking/NAPI_HOWTO.txt> for more
+ information.
+
+ If in doubt, say N.
