Alright sweet, i got somewhere :).  i was able to pull that down, do
my previous steps and git commit  and then the git format patch and it
pulled down a whole bunch of .patch files.
i've seen them before.  they also exist here.
http://www.fr.zoreil.com/people/francois/backport/r8169/20070604-00/broken-out/
Im confused as what i would need to do with these files.  would i run
them as a patch against the r8169.c file?  ie: patch p1 < 'one of the
patch files.patch'?
the other thing i've ran into trouble with is getting the git kernel
version for 2.6.16.52.  i've searched for a 2.6.16.52.git file and
haven't seen anything and also tried using get pull v2.6.16.52 and i
get a fatal error.  unable to chdir or not a git archive.  i've also
tried without the .52 and get the same thing.

Sorry, about that.  gmail hides previous emails.

i just want to make sure it was understood that i want try and make
the r8169 driver that supported my card in 2.6.22 and back port it to
work in 2.6.16.52.
