Subject[PATCH 0/8] Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (I/OAT)
This patch series is the first full release of the Intel(R) I/O
Acceleration Technology (I/OAT) for Linux. It includes an in kernel API
for offloading memory copies to hardware, a driver for the I/OAT DMA memcpy
engine, and changes to the TCP stack to offload copies of received
networking data to application space.

These changes apply to DaveM's net-2.6.17 tree as of commit
2bd84a93d8bb7192ad8c23ef41008502be1cb603 ([IRDA]: TOIM3232 dongle support)

They are available to pull from
git:// ioat-2.6.17

There are 8 patches in the series:
1) The memcpy offload APIs and class code
2) The Intel I/OAT DMA driver (ioatdma)
3) Core networking code to setup networking as a DMA memcpy client
4) Utility functions for sk_buff to iovec offloaded copy
5) Structure changes needed for TCP receive offload
6) Rename cleanup_rbuf to tcp_cleanup_rbuf
7) Add a sysctl to tune the minimum offloaded I/O size for TCP
8) The main TCP receive offload changes
