Ixgb driver in 2.6.1 (possibly 2.4) has several problems:
        * register_netdev error never handled
        * returns -ENOMEM for errors like bad eeprom etc
        * keeps copy of device name in the private data structure
          which is never used, and would be wrong anyway if
          the device was renamed.


Hey Intel guys...  is this driver alive or dead?
