Thank you for the link.
No, I did not try this link since I thought the CVS tree's version was
the stabelst version we have. I find it convenient by pushing it via net
using cvs just after I upgraded my CVS tree of the sources for the
operating system. I will keep this link in mind.
Is there a date we can this driver expect in FreeBSD 6.2? Or is the
driver more subject to be merged in 6.2-STABLE and for 6.3? nve() isn't
suitable, neither with SCHED_ULE (which I use now again) and with
SCHED_4BSD, because on my hardware platform the interrupt generation is
much higher than that of the nfe() driver - and due to this massive
interrupts useless for me.
