As you noticed from the size of the jumbo patch it changes several
operation scheme in the driver. Since re(4) supports lots of
model/revisions from RealTek it requires much more exposure and
testing under various environments(e.g. testing on sparc64 platforms
and > 4GB memory configuration etc).

I think updating drivers in HEAD prior to releasing 7.0/6.3 is not
good idea as it would make it hard to find/test possible bugs in
the release. The patch would be committed to HEAD first after 7.0
goes out.
