Subject: bugfix and enhancement for 8139too.c
1. I found a bug in 8139too when using PIO mode
In rtl1839_init_one the line "ioaddr = tp->mmio_addr;"
because tp->mmio_addr has no valid value when using PIO
mode. You can find
a work-around in the attached patch
patch fixes some compiler warnings when _not_ using
2. Our company (www.peppercon.de) produces a NIC
("ROL/F"), based on
RTL8139 chip, which has additional features like "Reset
on Lan" or
"Watchdog support". Because of this I made some
modifications of the
8139too driver to support these features. Is it
possible to include
our changes in the official driver? (see attached
If not: On which rules or conditions it depends?
These modifications doesn't do anything when no ROL/F
card is detected.
