I'm running Fedora Core-2 test 3 on a 2650, and I'm having
performance issues serving NFS.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the problem is caused by the tg3 
gigabit ethernet driver, and that it should be fixed by migrating
to a true broadcom bcm5700 driver.

However, the current drivers available from Broadcom are cnly for 
2.4 kernels, and hence do not work (or even install) on a 2.6 kernel.

Does anyone have, or know of, a working bcm5700 driver for a 2.6 linux
kernel ?
