Yes, and it has better/more regular performance.  lnc always had a
skip when doing ping for (.5ms vs 1.5ms).  The le driver has also been
fixed, from what I'm told, to not have the problem of losing a packet
to a reset under load.  I have nnot tested it under load but I trust
the author of le who I've been mailing wiht off list.

Part of the motivation for removing lnc was that le could be a
replacement, in particular on VMWare.
