[linux-tr] Difference b/w 2.2.10ac3 and 2.2.11?


More as an FYI than anything else.  Just compiled a 2.2.11 kernel with PCI Token
Ring / Olympic support.  I had a 2.2.10 (with AC3 patch) working beautifully.
Same config files, same everything...but the 2.2.11 driver failed.  The adapter
tried to open (I heard my splitter clicking on and off), the driver returned a
"Trying different ring speed" message, and finally gave up.

Most interesting...when I pulled ibmtr.c and ibmtr.h out of my 2.2.10-ac3 source
tree, put them in 2.2.11, and recompiled, everything was fine.  I'm perfectly
happy with this but thought maybe the list would like to know.
