Queued for inclusion in 2.6.29 is support for the Cavium OCTEON
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.
