I saw what I thought you called a "preliminary" driver.
There was discussion and I thought you got positive but 
muted (along the lines of "nice.. when will there be hardware for it?")
and some discussion of how it fits in with TCP offload, but I don't think
that anyone said they didn't like the idea..

hmm didn't someone else have an implementation? or am I getting
my wires crossed on that?
