New development version:, e100-3.0.0_dev11.tar.gz

Many thanks to JC [jchapman@xxxxxxxxxxx] for exploring the small packet
performance w/ and w/o NAPI.  This version includes one of his
optimization; others may follow, but I wanted to get this goodness out

* added opportunistic fast loop (no udelays) in 
  e100_exec_cmd to wait for previous cmd to be
  accepted before queuing next cmd.  Boost 
  small packet performance.  [jchapman@xxxxxxxxxxx].
* Use correct versions of dev_kfree_skb for depending
  on possible contexts.  [jchapman@xxxxxxxxxxx].

Looking for more testing on non-IA archs, power management, cardbus
nics, and WoL.
