SubjectRe: [PATCH] net/mlx4_core: print firmware version during driver loading
From
Date
The FW version is actually a very crucial piece of information and only 
printed once here
when the driver is loaded. People tend to get confused when switching
multiple FW files
back and forth without running separate utility tools, especially at
customer sites.
IMHO, this information is very useful and only takes up very little log
file space. :-)

I was also thinking of doing something slightly differently. Maybe we
just trim down the
output string, and add something like this?
--- a/drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx4/main.c
+++ b/drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx4/main.c

Thanks,
