Well, compile / static tested by: I probably have an ixgb adapter somewhere as well as a PCI-X slot that might work for it, but am not sure I can find them or that they still function. If I stumble upon one I'll fire it up and run it through some paces, but the variant of this patch for other drivers seem good and I don't want to hold this patch up any longer.
