I am curious what ever happened to the patch I submited to the
drivers/net/smc9194.c which made it possible to use the SMSC LAN91C96
with the MCEZ328 processors? I had submitted these about 6 months ago,
the CVS tree at does not have the current source, but when I
look at the ColdFire package sources the current driver is there.. I am
beginning to become concerned about the state of the uClinux sources:
Coldfire is using source that is different from CVS, Erwin has source
that is out of sync with Greg & CVS, and I have source that differs from
everyone else!

I am wondering what is to be done? I have a problem with uClinux where
I changed the frequency of the HZ jiffies from 100 Hz to 128 Hz and now
the console driver is behaving oddly (missing TX chars over RS232). I
am thinking that maybe one of the other three sources (Greg, CVS, Erwin)
have maybe corrected this, but who has the correct source? Is the
ColdFire IDE sources more advanced than the CVS?
