In case anyone is interested, I'm currently working on an
almost-kernel-ready version that will be self-contained based on the
LL-DMA version (the native MPMC port, not the PLB). It's based upon the
old adapter from MontaVista, that I originally ported to 2.6 and the
MPMC2. Unfortunately, it won't be ready for another few weeks since I'm
working on hardware images currently.

thanks for you reply david,

As far as I know the Linux driver for Xilinx PLB TEMAC was two parts :
1- adapter.c and 2- the rest of the driver files

Only adapter.c was really a linux related file and the rest of the files
were Xilinx generic driver code for PLB TEMAC.


then now, I know EDK 9.2 generates the needed Linux support package and
needed related files, so if this is the case can we use these files as
the needed driver in our linux kernel?

by the way, i did never hear about this git repository before...can you
describe us, where is it and how we can access it and which projects are
now hosted by it?
