- move firmware loading to request_firmware()
- remove direct memory access of structures
- any remaining sparse and checkpatch.pl warnings
- - any netdev recommended changes
+
+ - use net_device_ops
+ - use dev->stats rather than adapter->stats
+ - don't cast netdev_priv it is already void
+ - use compare_ether_addr
+ - GET RID OF MACROS
+ - work on all architectures
+ - without CONFIG_X86_64 confusion
+ - do 64 bit correctly
+ - don't depend on order of union
+ - get rid of ASSERT(), use BUG() instead but only where necessary
+ looks like most aren't really useful
+ - no new SIOCDEVPRIVATE ioctl allowed
+ - don't use module_param for configuring interrupt mitigation
+ use ethtool instead
+ - reorder code to elminate use of forward declarations
+ - don't keep private linked list of drivers.
+ - remove all the gratiutous debug infrastructure
+ - use PCI_DEVICE()
+ - do ethtool correctly using ethtool_ops
+ - NAPI?
+ - wasted overhead of extra stats
+ - state variables for things that are
+ easily availble and shouldn't be kept in card structure, cardnum, ...
+ slotnumber, events, ...
+ - get rid of slic_spinlock wrapper
+ - volatile == bad design => bad code
+ - locking too fine grained, not designed just throw more locks
+ at problem
