Hi all

I wounder if anyone has done some measurement on 8xx/82xx
current driver v.s a NAPI(New API) converted driver and willing
to share the resluts?

NAPI(see Documentation/networking/NAPI_HOWTO.txt) is supposed to reduce #irqs
under high load, which will increase small packet throughput. It got backported
to 2.4(around 2.4.20)
