Did a little testing on hrev51980:

  • marvell_yukon seems to work
  • broadcom440x is broken (my ethernet port is not even recognized - used to still work at the beginning of last year - just checked with hrev51149)

Thanks. Regarding broadcom440x, the changes are minimal (counters api) https://git.haiku-os.org/haiku/commit/src/add-ons/kernel/drivers/network/broadcom440x?id=57ca9c743d8240461d63f7363869a2e554b0360e Could you please create a bug report, attach a syslog with the working and non-working hrev?

I have a tower with a via_rhine chipset, but I'll need to find the right cables to hook it up to test. I can probably get to that this coming week or the next...
