Greg, David,
Andreas replied to similar request on patch v6:
"This driver is independent from mine. It uses an interface provided by the firmware which is not present on Apple hardware and with which I am not familiar (also it does networking, not pci with which I am also not familiar). So I cannot comment on the driver itself. I don't mind a second driver, if that is what you are asking."

Note that Thunderbolt Networking is the first feature we would like to submit, but the next features aren't related to network, but more to Thunderbolt functionality. 
This is the reason I created the directory thunderbolt/icm, since the next features requires ICM to be enabled as well.
I also followed the firewire as example that includes net.c (in drivers/firewire directory) along with other firewire functionality. 

Thanks,
Amir
