Queued for inclusion in 2.6.29 is support for the Cavium OCTEON
processor.  See:

This patch set adds support for the OCTEON SOC's on-board mgmt ethernet

The first patch is not too interesting, it adds a missing function to
the boot monitor memory allocator.  This is needed by the third patch.

Second I add register definitions for the hardware blocks used by the
driver.  This is just a lot of boiler plate.

Third is the main driver patch.

I anticipate that some changes may have to be made to the driver, but
I wanted to get some feedback before proceeding.  So please let me
know what you think should change with an eye to getting the driver

I will reply with the three patches.

David Daney (3):
 MIPS: Add named alloc functions to OCTEON boot monitor memory
 MIPS: Add some register definitions to OCTEON for MGMT ethernet
 netdev: New driver for OCTEON's MGMT ethernet devices.
