This raises eyebrows...

* I was under the impression Dell is recommending tg3.  When did this 
change?

* Dell has never reported lockups to me or Red Hat for resolution.  When 
will we be seeing these bug reports?

BroadCom is actively supporting tg3 development.  If there are bugs, 
please let us know about them.
