When I installed the ISS4 patch, I decided to go ahead and compile support
for an Ethernet Express/10 (which is on another box). When I made it, I
got an error at line 450 of drivers/net/eexpress.c about skb being

I looked around and realized (correctly, I hope) that someone had recoded
the driver but forgot to change a single reference of "skb" to "buf"...

here's the diff:

return 0;

I'm making alot of assumptions here, but I think I'm right. If so, we need
to have this patched inserted into the next release. If not, could someone
correct me? Thanx.
