Bug#599121: linux-2.6: [m68k] nfeth driver vanished? no network connectivity!

Source: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-24
Severity: important
Tags: experimental sid

After compiling an m68k kernel for ARAnyM using the atari platform,
requiring the fix from Debian #598893 as well as a patch I've sub-
mitted upstream¹ in order to allow inclusion into the Debian kernel,
and getting it to boot into multiuser, I find myself with a system
that doesn't support the nfeth (nat-feature) ethernet endpoint.

Further grepping in sid and experimental reveals:

tg@frozenfish:~/linux-2.6-2.6.32 $ fgrep -r NFETH .
tg@frozenfish:~/linux-2.6-2.6.36~rc6 $ fgrep -r NFETH .

So this must have been lost somewhere in the progress; I believe it
was available in linux-image-2.6.29-2-atari_2.6.29-5_m68k and can
say for sure 2.6.26-1-atari (Debian 2.6.26-13) had it.

With having *either* TLS *or* (virtual) networking but not both,
and having to rely on VMs to develop, this unfortunately brings
my attempts at helping reviving m68k to just another stop.

So, please bring back these patches. Thanks in advance!

  I'll reportbug this separately once the maintainer accepted it.
