It seems broadcom NICs and the kernel interact strangely indeed ...

I am going to go about this in a different way .. instead of doing it
piecemeal (which means I need individual people to tell me theirs is not
working), I am just going to put every FW Driver for bn2x and bnx2x into
the new kernel ... I am trying that now in a version that is
3.10.20-10.  I am not sure why this is not being done now upstream, but
lets see what happens.

I will send another email to the list if this builds .. when it is
