Broadcom/Tigon and NAPI

Post by <ulis.. » Fri, 16 Jan 2004 22:34:23

Hi all

The driver that comes with 2.4.22 (v1.6) seems to support NAPI, but when
interrupt load is high interrupts doesn't get disabled. This driver has no
CONFIG_ option or module parameter to enable it explicitly.

with high load I mean 10.000 interrupts/sec or higher

Any comment?

Thanks in advance

1. Your tigon 3 (broadcom 5700) driver

If you're not grabbing from the linux_2_4 branch of CVS you're not
using our latest driver.

Also the driver is still not expected to work yet.
