Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 2.6] myri10ge: DCA update (resubmit)

> This patch contains the following DCA improvements to myri10ge:
> 
> 1) Finally move myri10ge to use dca3 API
> 
> 2) Disable PCIe relaxed ordering when enabling DCA on
>     myri10ge.  This provides a performance boost on Nehalem
>     based Xeons

> 3) Make sure to properly initialize NIC's DCA state when it is

> 
> 3) Always update the cached CPU when our interrupt affinity changes
>     so as to avoid excessive calls to dca3_get_tag()
