Question Network on 680i with 2.6.19

I know a few of us have had problems enabling the onboard nics on the 680i. I see that 2.6.19 has been release and sports this tidbit:

forcdeth: revised NAPI support
Revised version of the forcedeth NAPI support.
This version is based against netdev-2.6#upstream (after the MAC patches from Ayaz today). Can't use nv_disable_hw_interrupts because NAPI only wants to mask off receive irq's and leave the others alone.
Anyone tried it? Yet? I reinstalled yesterday and don't feel like hosing my box yet.

The forcedeth issue on the EVGA 680i motherboard was determined to be a BIOS bug.

Thanks,

So BIOS update + msi & msix tweak is temporary resolution?

The msi & msix tweak didn't work for me with 2.6.17 (My bios is whatever shipped with the board (I know, I know. Promise to update when I get home. :-P ))

Thank you!
Dav

The msi + msix options are the workaround until a fixed BIOS is released. You shouldn't need the msi + msix options once a fixed BIOS is released.

Thanks,
