Maybe I could drop some of these, but...
For some performance critical functions on the datapath this would be an
attempt to improve icache hit rate by having the caller function located in
memory just before it's children (callees). As you can see, only some perf
critical functions are forward declared here, for the xmit() and rx/tx cleanup paths.
Does this make sense to you? Could you point me to some reading on this topic otherwise?

No, 0 for this bit means IPv4. Only UDP and TCP over IPv4 and IPv6 supported.

Yes, later patches. The first boards will be soon available.
Once we validate the remaining support for PHYs (including MDIO support which
is on the todo list) the patches will be available. Also, we're looking at phylink too.
Once we can confirm whether it works on our boards, the driver will be updated accordingly.

This code path is also reached by the VF driver (via the open() hook which is common to both
PF and VF drivers, and VFs don't manage PHYs).
Also, the driver may be exercised in MAC loopback mode (ethtool -K loopback on), when the
PHY nodes are removed. And it's always good to be able to run the driver on a simulator or
an emulator without having to modify it.

Documentation/DMA-API-HOWTO.txt still states:
" For correct operation, you must interrogate the kernel in your device
probe routine to see if the DMA controller on the machine can properly
support the DMA addressing limitation your device has. It is good
style to do this even if your device holds the default setting, [...]"

For the rest of the comments I didn't include in this reply: OK.

Thanks,
Claudiu
