I wrote a new firmware from scratch to offload most of a message passing
implementation (MPI, actually) into the Alteon NIC, including timeout
and retransmit, message matching, header building, etc.  It's almost
ready for release.  We're currently working on using both processors
of the Tigon in parallel.

There is other work which has modified the Alteon firmware to do, for
example, segmentation and reassembly (Underwood et al.), and further
work in progress on other topics.

Programmable NICs are fun.  I'd like to get one of those Tigon3 cards
to see if any of the register layout on the Tigon2 is still there,
hoping the interface is similar at least.
