I'm also interested in the tg3 fixes. Are these the same as in your 
aragorn kernel which I had an initially bad response to and backed  
off from on a production machine?
Should I try this kernel rather than the aragorn one if I'm trying  
something new to (further) fix tg3 hangs? (The bcm driver's right 
out; throughput speed is direly important on this system, and I'm
not especially fond of remote DoSes either.)

Coincidentally, Barry Roomberg (with whom I work) got Matt Domsch all
riled up about Broadcom at LinuxWorld last week, and Matt suggested
that some sense might be beat into Broadcom by way of the anti-Linux
exec there moving off the scene. Heard anything about that?

Matt, care to elaborate publicly (or privately, really)?
