This driver is supposed to support:
Mojave cards (single port PCI Gigabit) both copper and fiber
Oasis cards (single and dual port PCI-x Gigabit) copper and fiber
Kalahari cards (dual and quad port PCI-e Gigabit) copper and fiber
The driver was actually tested on Oasis and Kalahari cards.
- move firmware loading to request_firmware()
- remove direct memory access of structures
- any remaining sparse and warnings
- use net_device_ops
- use dev->stats rather than adapter->stats
- don't cast netdev_priv it is already void
- use compare_ether_addr
- work on all architectures
- without CONFIG_X86_64 confusion
- do 64 bit correctly
- don't depend on order of union
- get rid of ASSERT(), use BUG() instead but only where necessary
looks like most aren't really useful
- no new SIOCDEVPRIVATE ioctl allowed
- don't use module_param for configuring interrupt mitigation
use ethtool instead
- reorder code to elminate use of forward declarations
- don't keep private linked list of drivers.
- remove all the gratiutous debug infrastructure
- use PCI_DEVICE()
- do ethtool correctly using ethtool_ops
- wasted overhead of extra stats
- state variables for things that are
easily availble and shouldn't be kept in card structure, cardnum, ...
slotnumber, events, ...
- get rid of slic_spinlock wrapper
- volatile == bad design => bad code
- locking too fine grained, not designed just throw more locks
