Hi Jason

Just as an FYI:

1) I don't think anybody in netdev has taken a serious look at the
network code yet. There is little point until the controversial part
of the code, Zinc, has been sorted out.

2) I personally would be surprised if DaveM took this code without
having an Acked-by from the crypto subsystem people. In the same way,
i doubt the crypto people would take an Ethernet driver without having
DaveM's Acked-by.
