This patch removes the obsolete drivers/net/eepro100.c driver.

Is there any reason why it should be kept?

Tt's the only driver which works correctly on ARM CPUs. e100 is
basically buggy. This has been discussed here on lkml and more
recently on linux-netdev. If anyone has any further questions
please read the archives of those two lists.

After reading the archives, one discovers the current status is:

waiting on ARM folks to test e100

Latest reference is public message-id <4371A373.6000308@xxxxxxxxx>, which was CC'd to you.

There is a patch in netdev-2.6.git#e100-sbit and in Andrew's -mm tree that should solve the ARM problems, and finally allow us to kill eepro100. But it's waiting for feedback...
