Many of us on the networking developer team believe that making the
programming interface to the cpus on the Tigon3 is the biggest mistake
3com could ever make.
What made the Acenic so ubiquitous and interesting was that you could
program the firmware on the board to do whatever you like. They even
provided an entire firmware developer kit so you could hack on it.
So many useful projects came from this capability.
I feel dirty working on the Tigon3 driver for 2.4.x because of this.
