Sure. Will send out updated patch soon.

Thank you for pointing it out (I didn't know the doc-guide). Given I copied the function comment from eth_addr_dec(), I will also fix the format for eth_addr_eth() then.

BTW, "()" is missing from all the other functions' comment in etherdevice.h, so maybe we should fix that in a separate patch?


Thanks,

- Tao
