What is the status of sk98lin? Do we have to wait until Syskonnect gets their act togetherand write a new driver for 2.6.10? Their latest is Oct 2004 and not at all compatible with 2.6.10 and beyond.
I've been telling SysKonnect for _years_ that they need to split up their patches, but they still keep sending ever-larger jumbo driver update patches.
Stephen Hemminger split up their patch into a bunch of patches, and I applied several of those.
Apparently, Stephen also got sick of trying to patch and clean sk98lin, so he went and wrote his own "skge" driver. It's available in my netdev-2.6 queue, and should be in the latest -mm.
