Dear all,

I guess I'm severe need of a 100BaseTX NIC with polling support in the

A special application requires processing of 40,000 packets/second or
more, and the interrupt load currently kills the machine (i.e. no
scheduling during peak load).

Any suggestions which card I should use? The driver has to be open
source, and the card shouldn't be too expensive (i.e. in the usual
price range of brand 100BaseTX NICs).
