The Debian kernel team regularly backports driver updates to the Linux kernel in stable releases to add support for new hardware. In the current stable release, the Linux kernel is based on longterm series 2.6.32.y. We generally prefer to cherry-pick bug fixes and new hardware support, but there are so many interrelated changes to tg3 since 2.6.32 that this seems to be impossible. So I've prepared a backport of tg3 from Linux 2.6.38, which is available in the git branch: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/bwh/debian-linux.git netdev-test The kernel configuration files we use are at <http://kernel.alioth.debian.org/config/2.6.32-33/> (note, this site will be unavailable for the next few hours). We would appreciate any help Broadcom can provide in testing this, and any advice on changes that should be added or reverted.
