That didn't take long -- I released the new driver set late last night
(early this morning) into the test directory, and haven't yet announced
the new versions.

You also need the new kern_compat.h, which I needed to update to support
the requirement for MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") in the later 2.4 kernel.

Also defined in the new kern_compat.h. This is part of the new
NETIF_MSG settings, which is a low-overhead way of selectively enabling
driver message. By default most messages are disabled, but different
messages types can be enabled per-interface while the driver is running.
