I usually don't update the branches on that machine all that often, the machine 
is horribly slow and a git-checkout of a new branch takes 5 minutes. However, it 
*is* the very latest version of ixgbe and the one I intend to get Jeff to merge ;).

If you want to automatically pull all the changes I make for all the drivers, I 
would probably prefer going to a git.kernel.org tree instead, which is something 
I have been contemplating already, and I might just do so

in any case, you do want to drop the ~aveerani/git/linux-2.6#ixgbe branch, which 
is quite a bit older than that.
