Absolutely, I am available to support you, better I can.
So no problem to clarify strange or complex parts of the driver
and find/try new solutions to enhance it.

I have just replied to a previous thread about that...

To be honest, I have in the box just a patch to fix lock on lpi
as I had discussed in this mailing list some week ago.
I will provide it asap.

Hmm, what I find strange is that, just this code is running since a
long time on several platforms and Chip versions. No raise condition
have been found or lock protection problems (also proving look
mechanisms).

I'd like to avoid to break old compatibilities and having the same
performances but if there are some bugs I can support to review
and test. Indeed, this year we have added the 4.x but some parts
of the code (for TSO) should be self-contained. So I cannot image
regressions on common part of the code... I let Alex to do a double
check.

Pavel, I ask you sorry if I missed some problems so, if you can
(as D. Miller asked) to send us a cover letter + all patches
I will try to reply soon. I can do also some tests if you ask
me that! I could run on 3.x and 4.x but I cannot promise you
benchmarks.

I think that bug fixing should be on top of net.git but I let Miller
to decide.
