Description of problem:

Which driver to use, bcm5700 from vendor or tg3 from FC4 stock kernel? 

For a long time the tg3 has all kinds of problems like eating up lots of CPU 
cycles, less (about 10%-20%) slower than bcm5700, support less new models from 
Broadcom.

I also find that the bcm5700 driver has not been included in FC stock kernel 
for a long time, and legacy bcm5700 module in /etc/modules.conf 
or /etc/modprobe.conf will be automatically replaced with tg3 driver by OS.

Is the tg3 driver now stable and efficient enough? or I still have to patch it 
with vendor's bcm5700 driver?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
