Another thing to note about the IXP support is that there is NO network 
support due to license restrictions. Intel has chosen to release their CSR 
libraries under a proprietary license. The CSR libraries provide the Access 
Layer, which is a software interface for accessing the hardware ports. I'd 
had heard rumors that Intel was going to release this code under GPL, but 
that was months ago. So, for now IXP only supports the serial interface.
