Nemo based e1000g on T2000

Derek Morr points out that T2000 uses e1000g controllers, which are still dlpi based, so they wouldn't (yet) get the advantages of Nemo (GLDv3). Very good observation. The T1000 already uses a broadcom chip which comes up as bge which is fully Nemo based. The T2000 indeed uses a DLPI based driver in Solaris 10 update currently. Without going into the why (its not very pretty), the Nevada and OpenSolaris version of e1000g is already Nemo based (BTW, the DLPI driver comes up as ipge on T2000 which tell you that its not Nemo based). The Nemo based patches for e1000g (for S10) should be available soon if not avialable already. Pretty soon the machine will ship with the patches already installed and future updates will obviously have the Nemo version.


Comments:

Do the patches exist yet? Desperatly want to do link aggregation on my t2000 but get the following: dladm: create operation failed: No such file or directory (invalid interface name)
