Hi David,

looks like we'll need to use the Octeon Ethernet driver from SDK 2.0
or later in our system, for performance reasons. We plan to use 2.6.39,
so we can not directly use the SDK driver.

Do you (or someone else) have plans to port it to the upstream kernel,
or do you know if such a port exists ?

I can't really comment on specific plans other than to say that we are working towards reducing the divergence between our Octeon SDK and upstream kernels.

The existence of any port is irrelevant, what you want is something you can use, and I am not aware of anything other that what is currently in the drivers/staging.
