Oh hey cool, missed that or forgot about it, not sure which.  Though it
still seems to me that having two drivers to do the same thing
(theoretically) is somewhat redundant.  I was hoping you'd chime in
when the rmnet driver got proposed upstream, but davem merged it anyway
even though I think it has some conceptual issues.  Do we plan to
support most of the things that the rmnet driver does (aggregation,
etc) or do we plan on making them compatible with each other at some
