Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/6] [RFC] qlge: New Driver: Adding main driver file qlge_main.c.

Hi Ben,
Thank you for your input. I guess it's obvious I forgot to run
checkpatch.  I will run it before I repost with the changes you suggest.
I am still working on the receive buffer copy/realignment so those
changes won't be in the next post. There are a few points of discussion
in-line below.
Regards,
Ron Mercer

I coded it that way originally but it was so messy I pulled it out. I
felt that if a system can't supply the number of interrupt vectors
requested it's just as well to run in MSI single vector mode. I don't
think this is likely to happen. I am open to change this if anyone
insists, but it didn't seem worth the complexity to me.

I'm going to get rid of this. What we're trying to do is tell the chip
how to interpret the memory in BAR 3. It doesn't have to match the
actual PAGE_SIZE from the OS as I originally assumed.  I will change it to 4k and leave it at
that.

It should be rx_ring.  This chip uses tx_rings to send packets to the
chip and their completions are added to a separate rx_ring. I've coded
this to use two types for rx_rings: those that handle outbound
completions and those that handle inbound.

Since I have to touch the hardware to change the max frame size I
wanted to verify that a change was actually taking place.  The change
requires grabbing a semaphore that is shared with firmware and it's all
kind of involved.  I thought it would be good to skip that if nothing
was changing.
As far as the ==1500 or  ==9000 I will get back to you later. This was a
requirement passed down for a previous chip at Qlogic, but it may not
apply here.  More on this later...
