See below.

Changes of behavior should be reported for this patch over plain 3.4-rc2 or
current 3.3-stable as both include Andreas's fix.

Otherwise it can not be labelled it as a fix : it does not go into 3.4-rc
nor 3.3-stable but proceeds through net-next where it will land into
3.5-rc then -stable.

One can not exercize the Tx xmit vs napi Tx completion race part of the
patch with a single core. Afaiui non-Soekris users are needed here.

Even if you don't experience change of behavior over 3.4-rc or 3.3-stable,
some longterm use of this driver would be welcome. It may end as an effort
for 3.5-rc though.


Will code drivers for food.
