Intel igb nic driver

Mon Sep 22, 2008 10:47 pm

Could you guys please add the Intel igb driver to the kernel?

A lot of server boards now are coming with the 82575/6 nics..

They don't add drivers.
They wait till the kernel includes them.

I think that v3.14 has updated drivers list and new e1000 driver is used.

The new e1000 doesn't support it ( I've tried 3.14 )

Kernel 2.6.26.5 has it included. is is the igb option.

Hopefully they'll enable it, so I can get an added 2 gig-e's!

igb: PCI-Express 82575 Gigabit Ethernet driver

We are pleased to announce a new Gigabit Ethernet product and its
driver to the linux community. This product is the Intel(R) 82575
Gigabit Ethernet adapter family. Physical adapters will be available
to the public soon. These adapters come in 2- and 4-port versions
(copper PHY) currently. Other variants will be available later.

The 82575 chipset supports significantly different features that
warrant a new driver. The descriptor format is (just like the
ixgbe driver) different. The device can use multiple MSI-X vectors
and multiple queues for both send and receive. This allows us to
optimize some of the driver code specifically as well compared to
the e1000-supported devices.

This version of the igb driver no lnger uses fake netdevices and
incorporates napi_struct members for each ring to do the multi-
queue polling. multi-queue is enabled by default and the driver
supports NAPI mode only.

All the namespace collisions should be gone in this version too. The
register macro's have been condensed to improve readability.
