Well, If I remember right, Mark doesn't even have a galileo board anymore
(someone else got it). So I could probably make an argument I'm the
maintainer now.

I strongly suggest you submit me (or the -galileo) list patches, otherwise
when I start merging the _galileo tree code to _devel, I'm likely to blow
your changes away because I can't test them.

And PLEASE give me a different eth driver ;)

The one in the tree right now works for single cpus, but
a) is ugly
b) blows up very nicely with SMP.

The _galileo tree was created to keep us from thrashing in _devel with a
bunch of crappy (but working) code.

FYI, I am about ready to merge Zuma's gt64260_mpsc driver to 2_4_devel
since it seems to work reasonably well, and the code is mostly sane. If
you have another mpsc driver, speak now or forever hold your peace.
