Description Matt Domsch 2001-07-31 15:49:50 UTC
Please add an RPM containing ethtool.  Dell could find it very useful to 
be able to run ethtool at customer CD install time in kickstart %post, to 
tie ethX PCI bus/dev/fn information to the names in lspci or known to BIOS.

I'm submitting patches to Arjan and Alan to add ETHTOOL_GDRVINFO ioctl 
information into e100, e1000, eepro100, acenic, and bcm5700 drivers.  
Other drivers already include such support.
