Current tc35815 driver is very obsolete and less maintained for a long
time. Replace it with a new driver based on one from CELF patch
archive. It was for 2.6.10 kernel so some adjustment and cleanup are
added. (remove config.h, SA_ to IRQF_ conversion, etc.)
Major advantages are:
* Independent of JMR3927.
(Actually independent of MIPS, but AFAIK the chip is used only on
* TX4938 support.
* 64-bit proof.
* Asynchronous and on-demand auto negotiation.
* High performance on non-coherent architecture.
* ethtool support.
* Many bugfixes and cleanups.
And next patch add further improvements/bugfixes/cleanups.

Would you be kind enough to
a) provide a URL to a .c file (or post it, if it's under 100K) so that
we may more easily review this
b) combine both patches into a single patch. might as well, since it's
c) rediff your patch against linux-2.6.git + Ralf's killall removal
patch, and resend. There were some minor conflicting changes that
appeared, though these changes will certainly become irrelevant once
your new driver is merged.
