Subject: forcedeth oops

Hello

I'm getting an oops in forcedeth whenever I shutdown, details below.

I've tried kernel 2.6.16.59 and the latest forcedeth.c from nvidia.com
which is package-1.23 version-0.62 date-2007/04/27.

How can I download the latest forcedeth.c (including 2008-01-13 patches) ?
It's not in the latest snapshot linux-2.6.24-rc8.

Also, why is the version on nvidia.com not just older than the one in
the kernel, but it appears to have forked back in May 2006.  Has there
been independent development on each version?  They should be the same!

Here's the diff:
<  *    0.56: 22 Mar 2006: Additional ethtool and moduleparam support.
<  *    0.57: 14 May 2006: Moved mac address writes to nv_probe and nv_remove.
<  *    0.58: 20 May 2006: Optimized rx and tx data paths.
<  *    0.59: 31 May 2006: Added support for sideband management unit.
<  *    0.60: 31 May 2006: Added support for recoverable error.
<  *    0.61: 18 Jul 2006: Added support for suspend/resume.
<  *    0.62: 16 Jan 2007: Fixed statistics, mgmt communication, and low phy speed on S5.
