Note to all,
I merged e100 into 2.5.x to get it some wider testing and feedback. The
driver currently has several PCI posting bugs particularly, and other
outstanding bugs that need zapping before the driver will be considered
DO NOT USE THIS DRIVER IN PRODUCTION.
After these bugs are fixed and it has received wider testing and
feedback, only then will it be merged into the stable 2.4.x series.
I recommend all vendors avoid this driver, for the moment. It is for
developers, testers, and early adopters only. It should be ok for
normal use, but edge cases are not yet zapped.
