    (3.1)

  • Emulex Blade Engine 2 10Gbps adapter driver (be2net): Add support for multiple Tx queues. (3.1)

  • Emulex FC/FCoE driver (lpfc): Add FCF priority failover functionality. (3.1)

  • Intel PRO/1000 PCI-Express Gigabit network adapter driver (e1000e): Add Jumbo Frame support for the 82583 Gigabit Ethernet Controller. (3.1)

  • QLogic 1/10 GbE Converged/Intelligent Ethernet Adapter driver (qlcnic): Add multi-protocol internal loopback support. Driver can now generate loopback traffic, conduct tests, and return the results to an application. (3.1)

  • coretemp: Add core and package threshold support. The thresholds are configured using the tempX_max and tempX_max_hyst interfaces in sysfs. An interrupt is generated if the CPU temperature reaches or crosses above tempX_max or if it drops below tempX_max_hyst. To allow the hysteresis mechanism to work, the value of tempX_max should be configured to be several degrees higher than the value of tempX_max_hyst. (3.1)
