Dear Sir,

I am the Marketing Specialist of Macronix International Co., Ltd. and
responsible for networking products. Around one month ago, our system
manager- Steve Chen had contacted with you regarding developing Linux
driver support for our LAN chip- MX98713 and MX98715.

So far as I know, you have been developing Linux driver for MX98713 series
but met some trouble. After Steve Chen's update to you on 9th of September,
did you solve all problem?

Meanwhile, for your information, Macronix already sussessfully presented
the single chip of NIC controller- MX98715 series. Under the booming
market, the monthly shipment of MX98715 already over 100Kpcs and will keep
ramping up quickly.  Also, we are facing big pressure regarding Linux
driver support on the MX98715 series for customers and field demand.

I sincerely need your fully support to provide the demanded driver for
MX98715 and MX98713 at your earliest possible.  If you need the demo board
for developing, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Looking forward to hearing for you soon.


Michael Wang
