Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+ dmfe.c: Version 1.28 01/18/2000
+ A Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 fast ethernet driver for Linux.

+ A. Compiler command:
+ A-1: For normal single or multiple processor kernel
+ "gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet -Wall
+ -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"
+ A-2: For single or multiple processor with kernel module version function
+ "gcc -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet
+ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"
+ B. The following steps teach you how to activate a DM9102 board:
+ 1. Used the upper compiler command to compile dmfe.c
+ 2. Insert dmfe module into kernel
+ "insmod dmfe" ;;Auto Detection Mode (Suggest)
+ "insmod dmfe mode=0" ;;Force 10M Half Duplex
+ "insmod dmfe mode=1" ;;Force 100M Half Duplex
+ "insmod dmfe mode=4" ;;Force 10M Full Duplex
+ "insmod dmfe mode=5" ;;Force 100M Full Duplex
+ 3. Config a dm9102 network interface
+ "ifconfig eth0"
+ ^^^^^^^^^^^ Your IP address
+ 4. Activate the IP routing table. For some distributions, it is not
+ necessary. You can type "route" to check.
+ "route add default eth0"
+ 5. Well done. Your DM9102 adapter is now activated.
+ C. Object files description:
+ 1. dmfe_rh61.o: For Redhat 6.1
+ If you can make sure your kernel version, you can rename
+ to dmfe.o and directly use it without re-compiling.
