Hi Gerhard

I expect you will get a lot of push back with a character device in
the middle of an Ethernet driver. One that mmap the Tx/Rx queue is
going to need a lot of review to make sure it is secure. Maybe talk to
the XDP/AF_XDP people, there might be a way to do it through that?

So i strongly suggest your drop tsnep_stream.c for the moment. Get the
basic plain boring Ethernet driver merged. Then start a discussion
about a suitable API for exporting rings to user space.
