> When using Broadcom Systemport device in 32bit Platform, ifconfig can
> only report up to 4G tx,rx status, which will be wrapped to 0 when the
> number of incoming or outgoing packets exceeds 4G, only taking
> around 2 hours in busy network environment (such as streaming).
> Therefore, it makes hard for network diagnostic tool to get reliable
> statistical result, so the patch is used to add 64bit support for
> Broadcom Systemport device in 32bit Platform.
> This patch provides 64bit statistics capability on both ethtool and ifconfig.
