Hi,

Is the wol support in forcedeth v25 complete yet? I was trying it with the
2.6.5 kernel it came with, tried the new forcedeth driver with a 2.6.3
kernel (because firewire seems broken in 2.6.5) however, my box will not
wake up as of yet.

According to the source there is a FIXME with a comment about powering
down the NIC. Does this mean that support for wol is incomplete for now?
Mind you, I am just curious, this is in no way meant as criticism.

On another note, Carl-Daniel mentioned that DEV_NEED_TIMERIRQ might be
removed from future releases. Is this still the case? Feedback would be
much appreciated, so I can keep my humble audience up to date on what's
going on at the wol front.

Thank you guys for your excellent work,

Arjen
