Hi Sunil

Do you have a git branch for everything? I would like to look at the
actual Ethernet driver, and the full API this driver exports to other

I think there real question here is, do you have split between this
driver and the actual device drivers in the right place? For me, link
up/down detection should be in the Ethernet driver, since it is not
shared with the crypto driver.
