Hey Guys - I have an R610 that's giving me a lot of errors on the nic
interface eth1.


I ran ethtool -i eth1 and found that it's running a more recent bnx2
driver than my other R610.


ethtool -i eth1

driver: bnx2

version: 1.9.3

firmware-version: 5.0.6 NCSI 2.0.3

bus-info: 0000:01:00.1


I'd like to downgrade the driver to version: 1.6.9 - which runs fine on
my other machine.


How would I do accomplish this?
