this patch should go into 2.6.24-rc, but it doesn't apply to upstream.

This may be because it requires "S2io: Support for 
add/delete/store/restore ethernet addresses", I am guessing?

We want to reverse the order of those two patches, because "S2io: 
Support for add/delete/store/restore ethernet addresses" is more 
appropriate for non-bug-fix 2.6.24 rather than current bugfix-only 
2.6.24-rc.
