Hello!

IMO HW_FLOWCONTROL is now outdated. It has served very well and encouraged people to use for Linux production networking. With a 2 tulip NIC's on a UP system as a typical system. Only tulip has code for it. This option was added by Alexey in 2.1.63 something...


If someone had a NAPI patch for tulip, we could remove HW_FLOWCONTROL option altogether :)
