I have created a patch that adds support to the IBM token-ring
driver for multiple adapters. "Multiple" in this case means two
adapters. I also generalized and enhanced the kernel network
device code WRT token-ring to allow up to eight devices and to
facilitate the addition of new token-ring drivers as they become

Two patches, one relative to the 2.0.25 kernel and the other
relative to the 2.1.14 kernel, are available at:


Unless there are any objections I am also volunteering as
maintainer for the IBM token-ring driver. Please send any bug
reports, comments, or suggestions regarding the driver or the
patch to
