SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/4] atl1: Revised Attansic L1 ethernet driver

I've tested the new driver for a couple of days, mostly by running
XDMCP session over the Gbit LAN. Its all working good.

I didn't experience any crashes or slowdowns at all. The driver is
definitly usefull in it current state.

Performance is good, tops at ~40MB/s.

BTW: what is this MSI patch?
