Subject: RE: Latest BCM5820 Driver and userland stuff
as Ram has pointed out the latest app land portions of the
SSL800 distribution have not made it into the latest Beta
Who is the right person to make this happen?
When will it be done? we are anxious to test with a RedHat
distribtion to ensure correct operation.
What is the release schedule for v8.0?
We tested here using Redhat kernel and Broadcom application
mode libs/apps with the following observations.
1) Performance using RedHat distributed OpenSSL along with
hardware acceleration is ~1/5 of what it is if we use the
latest OpenSSL snapshot. Are you aware of this problem?
This also implies that the latest driver has been integrated
correctly. We are continuing to test here.
2) The source rpm for the SSL800 product still contains
the older (1.17) bcm5820 driver.

Both should be resolved in bcm5820-1.81-2 and ucd-snmp-4.2.3-6. Please reopen
this bug if you find that this is not the case. Thanks!
