 } Thanks for working on this, John. Can you also upload the source diff?
 } I'd prefer compiling from source, actually.
      There's not much of a diff.  I previously committed the pcidevs
 and miidevs parts.  I used your patch to create etphy.c, if_et.c,
 and if_etreg.h.  For i386, I copied conf/MONOLITHIC to ET, and for
 amd64, I copied conf/GENERIC to ET.  To each I added the lines to
 include the et driver (listed below), then I built the kernels.
 I would prefer that you test at least one of the kernels I provided,
 since that way when I commit the driver, I know it will have been
 tested with the stuff that I'm committing.  Thanks for doing the
 porting work and testing this.  If it's tested quickly, I may be
 able to get it into 5.0 which is rapidly approaching.
