    Hi, Matt,

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but how do we successfully return from
    netpoll_setup without np->dev filled in? Netpoll_setup has the following:

    if (!ndev->poll_controller) {
    printk(KERN_ERR "%s: %s doesn't support polling, aborting.\n",
    np->name, np->dev_name);
    goto release;
