[CentOS] Broadcom chips: TOE or no TOE?

Last time I checked (but that was a while ago) TOE (TCP Offloading 
Engine) was not supported very well, at least not with Broadcom chips. 
Did anything change in that regard recently?

More specifically, the chip I'm looking at is Broadcom NetXtreme II 5709 
and the distribution is 5.3

Any luck with proprietary drivers? Any problems those drivers may cause 
with bonding?
