None so far. Go wild.

(without priority)

- validate suspend/resume/wol

- fix the dac issues on x64
  Weird. Pita. Status needs to be updated.

- push jumbo frames beyond 7k
  see with Jon Mason

- merge with the 8139cp driver
  always interrupted but I have not given up

- fix the gcc 2.95.x miscompilations
  people upgrade their compiler and return to real life before it can be
  diagnosed. It should not be hard but I have not had the time to install
  a broken debian to reproduce it so far :o(

- benchmark/improve the performances
  Executive summary by Lennert Buytenhek: it sucks. If someone could identify
  where the bottleneck is with hard numbers...

- harvest the hopeless r8169 users on the web
  time consuming like hell but it really helps to figure if things are
  stable or not.

- backport to 2.4
  RSN. Pending queue is available here and will be pushed once 2.6.x is
  up-to-date.

- ask Ben Greear if he still experiences keyboard issues with its laptop
  when he uses the r8169 driver
  Pending for 5 months... Ahem.

Figure what's wrong with M. Gardiol setup ?
