Matt:

I'll zip up a copy of the gt64240eth driver as soon as I can track down
the relvant include files, and send it to you.  I should mention that
I'm still running it on a 2.4.0-test9 kernel.

Maybe after you verify that it is complete, we can post it to the list.

Our board configuration is a QED RM5261A with GT64240A, Intel Flash,
STK1744 RTC/NVRAM, 16C2550 DUART, and a bunch of Conexant HDLC I/O --
not all of which is coded yet.

I do have the basic arch/mips/patton/{generic,dsl3224} board support
trees which were based on mips/atlas and ev96100 ports but,
unfortunately, I still reference some Galileo/VxWorks sample code in the
interrupt handler.  This needs to be cleaned up.  I originally used
their code only because I did not have a working 64240 board to test
with and the Galileo datasheets are so ambiguous that I thought that
their sample code programmers might have had some hidden insight into
the chips.  I since have learned that the opposite is true and need to
clean all of that stuff out.
