CONFIG_SKGE: Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SKGE has multiple definitions:

Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet support found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_SKGE:

Help text

This driver support the Marvell Yukon or SysKonnect SK-98xx/SK-95xx and related Gigabit Ethernet adapters. It is a new smaller driver with better performance and more complete ethtool support.

It does not support the link failover and network management features that "portable" vendor supplied sk98lin driver does.

This driver supports adapters based on the original Yukon chipset: Marvell 88E8001, Belkin F5D5005, CNet GigaCard, DLink DGE-530T, Linksys EG1032/EG1064, 3Com 3C940/3C940B, SysKonnect SK-9871/9872.

It does not support the newer Yukon2 chipset: a separate driver, sky2, is provided for these adapters.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called skge. This is recommended.
