Network drivers - porting to 2.6 issues
Date: Thu Jun 15 2006 - 08:20:54 EST
I have ported a wlan driver from 2.4 to 2.6.
I am referring to the porting article in lwn.net.
The driver works fine for sometime. after which data transfer
becomes very slow.
i have telnet to a remote machine. i do ls -Rl /
data transfer is ok to start with, then it becomes very slow.
also whatever i type on the shell prompt appears after a while.
This happens - sometimes it is faster and then slow. this goes on in a cycle.
Is there any difference between a 2.4 and 2.6 kernel network stack?.
I have changed registeration, changing task queues to work queues
and stuff like that.
am not sure if the network stack api's and thier meanings have changed.
is there anything i should watch out for?.
sometimes i do get : NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth1: transmit timed out
What does this mean?.
is there anything more i should watch out for?.
