The 0.17 patch had an improper length indicator so the last
2 lines of forcedeth.c were not included, which would cause a
big nothing to happen when trying to modprobe the driver.
The 2 lines lost were, even though they were in the patch,
the length indicator prevented them from being copied into
Anyhow, an updated patch that includes those 2 lines against
2.6.0-test9-bk21 is here:
No black magic though, the only thing changed is the length indicator
As for test results, we have a success report on amd64/x86_64 on
an nForce3 board in 64bit mode. Transfers on a 100Mbit network using
scp are around 5MBytes/s, which is quite impressive (40Mbits/s), even though
there are 'proclaimed irq problems'. (150 MB file)
Thanks for the great work!
