Description Matt Domsch 2001-07-31 17:33:25 UTC
Patches to add ETHTOOL_GDRVINFO support to eepro100, e100, e1000, acenic, 
and bcm5700 can be found at http://domsch.com/linux/ethtool.
Please add these patches to the Fairfax kernel.  I've submitted acenic, 
bcm5700, and eepro100 patches to the appropriate maintainers already, and 
await their response.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-02 15:43:09 UTC
Added for next build

Comment 2 Matt Domsch 2001-09-11 20:20:18 UTC
Enigma gold is missing the e100 ethtool patch.  The others (bcm5700, acenic, 
e1000, eepro100) are all there.  Pensicola?

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-09-11 20:24:42 UTC
Aaaargh! hate last second driver updates!

Good thing that eepro100 works good now, so that Pensicola is a valid option.

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2001-12-06 17:16:46 UTC
I believe this to be fixed in the errata kernel.  Confirm?

Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2001-12-11 16:30:07 UTC
Neither 2.4.9-13 nor 2.4.9-17.3 contain the e100 or e1000 ethtool patches.

Comment 9 Matt Domsch 2001-12-13 04:30:46 UTC
Of course, the e100 driver changed just enough that the earlier patch would 
apply but not compile.  I provide a fixed patch (fixed in that it compiles at 
least - I'll test more on Thursday).

Comment 11 Matt Domsch 2001-12-13 17:14:50 UTC
Confirming that the e100 and e1000 patches work as expected when applied to 

Comment 12 Michael K. Johnson 2002-01-18 01:23:29 UTC
This should be fixed in the kernel in rawhide.
