-Linux* Base Driver for Intel(R) Network Connection
-==================================================
-
-Intel Gigabit Linux driver.

-
-This file describes the igbvf Linux* Base Driver for Intel Network Connection.
-
-The igbvf driver supports 82576-based virtual function devices that can only
-be activated on kernels that support SR-IOV. SR-IOV requires the correct
-platform and OS support.
-
-The igbvf driver requires the igb driver, version 2.0 or later. The igbvf
-driver supports virtual functions generated by the igb driver with a max_vfs
-value of 1 or greater. For more information on the max_vfs parameter refer
-to the README included with the igb driver.
-
-The guest OS loading the igbvf driver must support MSI-X interrupts.
-
-This driver is only supported as a loadable module at this time. Intel is
-not supplying patches against the kernel source to allow for static linking
-of the driver. For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the
-documentation supplied with your Intel Gigabit adapter. All hardware
-requirements listed apply to use with Linux.
-
-Instructions on updating ethtool can be found in the section "Additional
-Configurations" later in this document.
-
-VLANs: There is a limit of a total of 32 shared VLANs to 1 or more VFs.

-Identifying Your Adapter
-========================
-
-The igbvf driver supports 82576-based virtual function devices that can only
-be activated on kernels that support SR-IOV.
-
-For more information on how to identify your adapter, go to the Adapter &
-Driver ID Guide at:
-
- http://support.intel.com/support/go/network/adapter/idguide.htm
-
-For the latest Intel network drivers for Linux, refer to the following
-website. In the search field, enter your adapter name or type, or use the
-networking link on the left to search for your adapter:

-
-Additional Configurations
-=========================
-
- Ethtool
- -------
- The driver utilizes the ethtool interface for driver configuration and
- diagnostics, as well as displaying statistical information. The ethtool
- version 3.0 or later is required for this functionality, although we
- strongly recommend downloading the latest version at:
-
- http://ftp.kernel.org/pub/software/network/ethtool/
-
-Support
-=======
-
-For general information, go to the Intel support website at:
-
- http://support.intel.com
-
-or the Intel Wired Networking project hosted by Sourceforge at:
-
- http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000
-
-If an issue is identified with the released source code on the supported
-kernel with a supported adapter, email the specific information related
-to the issue to e1000-devel@lists.sf.net
