[eepro100-announce] eepro100.c v1.12 avaialable for test
Wed, 18 Oct 2000 16:40:05 -0400 (EDT)
This version fixes the occasional hang
- with certain i82559 chip versions
- after a self-test (module load or cold boot), and
- when the driver is compiled for memory space operations (now the default)
instead of I/O space operations.
The CVS log entry for the update:
Added a write buffer flush when setting the Rx address base to avoid an
apparent firmware bug in the i82559.
Renamed the i82562 implementation to "Intel Pro/100 V Network".
Added symbolic names for the high priority Tx queue commands.
Added the ability to force the duplex from an ioctl()
Added the sp->medialock variable.
Set sp->advertising by the transceiver when the driver is loaded.
Set the advertising or forced-duplex flag in mii_ioctl()
