New Revision: 187449

  - MFC: 154328
    Add the HP NC7771 adapter to the list of known products.
  - MFC: 162584
    Add documentation on the new bge tunable.  Also put the tunable docs
    into a separate section.
  - MFC: 162825
  - MFC: 169881 (bge.4 part)
    Remove BCM5704S specific tunable (hw.bge.fake_autoneg) and auto-detect
    the condition.
  - MFC: 174903
    Mention support for the 5722 driver in bge.4 as well.
  - MFC: 187315
    Sync the description of jumbo frame support with reality as of r187310;
    it's also supported with BCM5702 (matched by BGE_ASICREV_BCM5703) but
    bge(4) currently doesn't with neither BCM5714 nor BCM5780.
