Day 1 ( June 20 )

Unfortunately not much work was done today due to two exams for college. I continued with the ring init functions and also took a look at the freebsd driver. It can be confusing to decide which steps are required and which steps can be omitted while still having the card function reliably. Taking a look at the simpler freebsd driver can save a lot of confusion.

Day 2 ( June 21 )

Pushed ring init code to iret. I also started working on the tg3_transmit() function. This didn't result in much code, as luckily more code than expected could be removed from the linux driver.

Day 3 ( June 22 )

Pushed the tg3_transmit() code to iret. Today I tested the open and transmit code. My test machine locks up or reboots after open() is called(sometimes), and I was trying to find the cause of this bug. I'm probably messing up some pointer and/or DMA addresses, but haven't found out which one yet.
