Subject: Re: [linux-2.6.34-rc3] drivers/net: ks8851 MLL ethernet network

I cannot apply this, there are too many issues:

@@ -378,34 +384,34 @@ union ks_tx_hdr {
  * struct ks_net - KS8851 driver private data
- * @net_device 	: The network device we're bound to
+ * @net_device	: The network device we're bound to
  * @hw_addr	: start address of data register.

Do not mix lots of coding style and functional changes.

If you want to fix coding style, do it later in a seperate
patch after you implement your functional change.

+	if (!reg_data & CCR_ENDIAN) {

This test will never do what you want it to do.

First the compiler will evaluate "!reg_data" which will be either "0"
or "1", then it will and it with the CCR_ENDIAN mask, which is (1 <<
10).  And this can never be true.

I also do not like all of the endian ifdefs peppered all over the
driver.  Try consolidate this by creating a header file that contains
the structure and macro definitions, and in there create helper inline
functions which do the ifdefs.  This way the ks8851_mll.c file can
stay ifdef clean.
