I can split it as:

-1.3.6+bugfixes (the patch I submitted to the Red Hat bugzilla)
-1.3.7 (VLAN support)
-1.3.9 (64-bit support)
-1.4.1 (NAPI support)

But I'd like to hear first if my previous mail addressed your concerns.
BTW, if I didn't make it clear enough: that 4 slot reservation is an
optimization, not a workaround -- it would work correctly even without it,
but you'd get really sucky behavior with SG skbuffs.


  It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
            than to open it and remove all doubt.
