Subject: Submission for S2io 10GbE driver
Per your suggestion, attached is the driver source.
Couple disclaimers -
1. There are some history logs from our CVS at the end of the source
files, you will probably want us to remove these.
2. We are working on adding more loadable tunable parameters.
3. This is a shipping (as of last October) card, and Linux driver got
some reasonable mileage on 2.6 kernel and number of 2.4 distributions,
mostly 2.4.21 based. Having said that, we still run performance and
stress tests in QA since 10GbE is fairly new.
All comments/suggestions are very welcome; let me know if you need
anything besides the source from our end.
