Thats what i did. This would hopefully work with GSO now (infact nit
works now with GSO when it didnt before).

This patch now includes two changed drivers (tun and e1000). I have
tested tun with this patch. I tested e1000 earlier and i couldnt find
any issues - although as the tittle says its a WIP.

As before you need net-2.6. You also need the qdisc restart cleanup
patch.

Please comment.

If all is good, I think my next efforts will be to convert pktgen to be
aware of the api so we can have some serious traffic generation.

cheers,
jamal
