Hi Marek,

Thank you very much for your feedback. We have two Ethernet drivers. One
is 10/100/1000 MB rmii driver, which is being used as you have described.
The second one is this 10/100 GB bnxt driver, which is probed and managed
on demand with these netXtreme commands. We will have a look and address
your comments.
