A difficult one.  The changes particularly in the first patch (2/5 in
this email thread) are very volumous, though they do only seem to add
definitions for the new chip.  The driver changes in the second patch
(1/5 in this email thread) seem very well self contained.  The fixes on
top all seem simple.  As this is an ethernet chipset I am generally
inclined to be flexible about accepting them, as they are needed for
netboot.  Also we are more accepting of such changes in LTSs where
enablement is a big issue.
