2.0.x should firstly be stable, stable and stable. and there are numerous
reports that this driver doesn't work well for 3x905 cards. we only
get about ~200 kbytes/sec on our 100Mbit net between two Linux PCs with
such cards and this driver; ~500 kbytes/sec from SGI O2 to Linux.

just because it works fine for your setup isn't enough reason to break
things in 2.0.X kernels for others.
