A while back I posted about a problem I’d experienced compiling the NetFPGA kernel driver. In newer kernels the function init_mutex had been removed and so the driver couldn’t be compiled. I figured out a work around which I originally posted here

This fix is now included in the latest software release. Actually, it’s been sorted for a while now, but I’ve only just gotten round to posting about it :). This is great news as although I created a working patch for it, I wasn’t entirely sure whether I’d inadvertently broken something else at the same time. It’s always nice to know that you got something right :)

Kudos the NetFPGA guys, it is really an awesome project!
