I'm not too sure why I got cc'ed on this (and not on patches 1-6?) but
whatever.

This patch introduces quite a number of basic coding-style mistakes. 
Please run it through scripts/checkpatch.pl and review the output.

The patch introduces vast number of volatile structure fields.  Please see
Documentation/volatile-considered-harmful.txt.

The patch inroduces a modest number of unneeded (and undesirable) casts of
void*, such as

+       struct cpmac_mdio_regs *regs = (struct cpmac_mdio_regs *)bus->priv;

please check for those and fix them up.

The driver implements a driver-private skb pool.  I don't know if this is
something which we like net drivers doing?  If it is approved then surely
there should be a common implementation for it somewhere?

The driver does a lot of open-coded dma_cache_inv() calls (in a way which
assumes a 32-bit bus, too).  I assume that dma_cache_inv() is some mips
thing.  I'd have thought that it would be better to use the dma mapping API
thoughout the driver, and its associated dma invalidation APIs.

The driver has some LINUX_VERSION_CODE ifdefs.  We usually prefer that such
code not be present in a merged-up driver.

Do we not have a library function anywhere which will perform this little
multicasting hash?

This function is far too large to be inlined.

unneeded cast

Is locking not needed for the above?

I don't think this can happen?  If it can, something is pretty screwed up?

I think alloc_etherdev() already did that?
