Subject: Re: [RESEND] benet: BladeEngine 10Gb NIC driver

If we could get more specific feedback about the areas that require cleanup, we can take care of them quickly.  

Since the last posting, we have brought up the driver in a PPC system and fixed some endianness issues.  As soon as I have some specific feedback, we can update the driver with these fixes as well.

Please let me know as soon as the driver is in the staging area.

Thanks.

Subbu

The overall consensus at this year's Linux Kernel Summit was that this 
driver still needs a lot of cleanup, so I'm gonna try an experiment and 
stick this in the staging tree (currently jgarzik/netdev-2.6.git#benet).

Greg, do I need to do anything beyond simply putting it into the 
directory?  Do I need to add some code to taint, perhaps?
