skge vs. myk with nwam

My Acer C90S laptop has the Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, 11ab 4364.

I've been running the sysconnect skge driver for about a year and a half, it's worked really well.

I have notice recently that dladm show-link could not see the state correctly, this caused the new nwam not to be able to switch automatically to the atheros wifi if I unplugged the cable.

This is also a 64Bit Intel dual core desktop processor laptop, so I need to be able to build 64 bit drivers,

I found another blog entry that talked about the myk gld3 driver available from http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/taiyodo/eng/.

After downloading the mac.h and mac_ether.h and installing in /usr/include/sys, following the instructions in the enclosed README.txt to change the links in the directory I built the driver.

I removed the old SKGE driver and did the update to the myk driver.

nwam now see's when I unplug the cable and rolls to the wifi, all the icons in the gnome-netstatus-applet 2.12.2 within the gnome panel are changing also, this is the new feature track system active interface.

I'm still trying to track down why /etc/resolv.conf does not get updated when I roll back to the ethernet adapter, it gets left as set by the wifi.
