A couple of users were still using nve(4) in the past. I guess the issue might be lack of code for waking up MAC/PHY from powerdown. nfe(4) already has the needed code and should support all known NVIDIA ethernet controllers with full offloading support. So no objection from me. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
