Default Broadcom firmware doesn't work with 2.6.32-r4

Hi collective,

I just upgraded from linux-2.6.32-tuxonice-r1 to r4 and my network card
no longer works. It is "Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5756ME
Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express" and previously I've downloaded firmware
from
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware-from-kernel.git;a=tree;f=tigon
and put it in /lib/firmware/tigon

The config option is tg3, built into the kernel.

dmesg shows:
$ dmesg | grep -i tg3
tg3.c:v3.102 (September 1, 2009)
tg3 0000:09:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
tg3 0000:09:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
tg3 0000:09:00.0: firmware: requesting tigon/tg3_tso.bin
tg3: tg3_load_firmware_cpu: Trying to load TX cpu firmware on eth0 which is 5705.
tg3: tg3_load_firmware_cpu: Trying to load TX cpu firmware on eth0 which is 5705.

I don't know if the last two lines are normally there or not. The
firmware at the above link hasn't changed (according to cksum).

Google searches only produce the source code, which is pretty but
doesn't help. The error detection around the print message hasn't
changed since -r1.

Any ideas? I'm stuck using wireless, but that's dropping in and out all
the time!

thanks,

Check out http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=304265 and then update to 2.6.32-r5

Cheers

thanks, that wasn't there when I started looking I'll see what they
find (in the mean time, Go Flaky Wireless!)
