It appears that multiple boards at the same level 2 or level 6
interrupt can be handled at the same time, i.e. 1+N Lance
ethernet cards? The older le driver stomped on multiple cards.
When was the change put in and does it work OK? I was just
settling down to add Multicast to the le driver when I
noticed an #if 0 in the config routine.
Also, it would appear that the ethernet card is in the
isr chain before the internal SCSI controller on a 3000. Would
this have any impact in SCSI vs le wars? It looks like other
SCSI controllers are at 2 as well so does that mean the ethernet
cards will always be processed before the SCSI controllers? Is
this a performance concern? Is there a way to manually force
the config order of devices so the SCSI controller would be
configured before the other devices? It appears that a SCSI
controller will always be the last thing to config from the
kernel boot output I've seen.
