All, A new NIC driver API has been committed that allows us to make the ifnet structure an abstract type. The abstract type being 'if_t'.
The miibus(4), fxp(4), em(4) and bxe(4) drivers have been converted to use the API already. Other drivers will follow in the coming weeks. The conversion is mechanical and does not change the behavior of the drivers. As such, there's no user-visible impact. If you do run into a problem after upgrading and you're using any of the converted drivers, please let me know. It is always possible that the conversion introduces a bug. To test whether the conversion introduced the problem, revert any of the following revisions depending on the driver that gives you the problem: r266974 miibus(4) r266977 fxp(4) r266978 em(4) r266979 bxe(4) If you find yourself reverting r266974, please also revert the other 3 revisions as they depend on r266974.
