I fixed some bugs, and have been using this under LOCKDEBUG with both NET_MPSAFE and without for a couple of days with no ill effects (using converted "wm" driver and unconverted "pcn" driver). I also had to convert the "usbnet" code, because it can't use the "non-converted driver compatibility" mechanism I provided (it sleeps, frequently). I did, however, make its locking protocol a lot simpler. I need help testing the usbnet changes -- if you have a USB Ethernet dongle, ping me off-list.
I was informed that the patch was mangled, so I've posted it here:
