Driver for Intel Tolapai 80579 Gigabit Ethernet controllers

where variant is one of v4, v4-hc, or v6-hc.
The devnp-i80579.so driver manages the Intel Tolapai 80579 Gigabit Ethernet controller. This is a native io-pkt driver; its interface names are in the form gbeX, where X is an integer.
Some devices support hardware checksums, although some might do so in only one direction; to determine if your device does, type:
and look for the following in the list of supported options:
You can then use ifconfig to enable or disable whichever of these options your device supports.
|Native io-pkt and ported NetBSD drivers don't put entries into the /dev/io-net namespace, so a waitfor command for such an entry won't work properly in buildfiles or scripts. Use if_up -p instead; for example, instead of waitfor /dev/io-net/gbe0, use if_up -p gbe0.|
Start the v4 TCP/IP variant of io-pkt using the devnp-i80579.so driver:
io-pkt-v4 -d i80579 ifconfig gbe0 10.1 ping -n 10.2
