natsemi.c & 2.4.6 on Alpha [patch]

I'm not quite sure where to send this, but I figure someone here will

This past weekend I upgraded my Alpha (LX) to kernel 2.4.6.  Only
problem was that my network card (NetGear FA-311) did not work.

I have found and fixed the problem, a one-liner 32-bit-ism in the
driver.  Short patch follows:

        int read_cmd = location | EE_ReadCmd;

Suggestions on where to send this patch, or kind offers to forward it
to the correct place, gratefully accepted.
