I have ported your driver for kernel 2.6.6 to kernel 2.6.8 and, it
seems that it works (including TOE).

test3:~ # cat /proc/net/toe/devices
Device Offload Module Interfaces
toe0 Chelsio T1 eth0
test3:~ # uname -a
Linux test3 #3 SMP Fri Jun 17 01:15:03 CEST 2005 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64

I can provide patch to mailing list if it is allowed.
