Ok, thanks - that was my only concern.
Note there is a lot of offload efforts going on in Linux right now.
Take a look at the proceedings from netdev01. You should take advantage
of that to shape the direction of your patches.
I have suffered at the hands of the sdk for this processor in the past;
it is just a bad idea to keep these SDKs around when Linux can express
the features sufficiently.
Note: The main thing i'd be interested in is when you get to offloading
the classifier/scheduler etc. I know you are focussing on just the
ethernet level at the moment,

cheers,
jamal
