Subject: Re: NET_POLL missing in the new ibm_emac driver?

Hi all; any love here?  Maybe a pointer or two (e.g., what's the
equivalent, in the new emac driver, of these lines in the old driver:

	emac_rxeob_dev((void *)ndev, 0);
	emac_txeob_dev((void *)ndev, 0);



I was having so many problems with the 2.6.14 (old) emac driver that I
backported the new one from 2.6.15.  It works great... until I tried to
use KGDBOE with it.  Then I got:

    kgdboe: eth1 doesn't support polling, aborting.

Looking around I see that I need the driver to support the
poll_controller method in the net device, and the new driver doesn't
seem to do that.

I see the old implementation of this method, but of course it uses
interfaces that no longer exist so I can't use that directly.  It seems
like a small change but I'm not really familiar with the implementation
of the ibm_emac driver; does anyone have a patch for the new driver to
provide this feature?
