Subject: [RFC][BNX2X] .h files rewrite

Dave,

Please take a look and tell me if this is better than the last attempt.

Main changes:

* Rewrite of the init code: 
	1. Full rewrite of the generated code into something easier to read.
	2. Removed zeroes by adding a zero command.
	3. Big chucks of data are read by the chip using the DMA engine (instead of being written by the driver).
	4. Gzipped more of the data.

* Removed BE microcode, the swapping is done in the driver instead.

* Rewrite of the HSI - broke it into three files bnx2x_hsi.h bnx2x_reg.h and bnx2x_fw_defs.h

* Fixed SPARSE warnings.

* Fixed all but three checkpatch.pl warnings. (IMHO they are false positives)

The diff is against latest net-2.6.

(will also attache patch inline as reply to this email for review)

Thanks
Eliezer
