This 3Com driver patch against 2.3.99-pre6-5 is (I hope) ready to roll.

The patch is at

The changelog is at

Files affected:

     Removed 3c575_cb, augmented 3c59x


     Merged with 3c575_cb. Merged stuff from ~5 other similar
     drivers. Many other changes.

     Removed 3c575_cb.c

     Added 8 new NICs.

     Changed the modules_install target to create the 3c575_cb.o
     back-compatibility symlink.

     Not very pretty, but Keith Owens is restructuring the modules
     installation infrastructure - suggest we wait and see what
     he comes up with.

** CONFIG_PCMCIA_3C575 should be removed from arch/i38c/defconfig,
   but I don't think that's patchable?

There are still a few niggling issues:

 - 575 Cardbus cards not coming online 100% of the time. Vastly
   improved, but still occasionally fails when the driver is statically

 - Hard-to-reproduce reports of NICs going to sleep after 30 minutes
   of inactivity.

 - One user's 905B going off the air under simultaneous heavy n/w
   and video usage (surely related to the console code's extended
   interrupt blockage, but I can't reproduce).
