To compile this driver into the kernel, add the following lines to the kernel
To load the driver as a module at boot, add this line to
support for devices using the ARM AMBA-based backplane architecture found in
later Broadcom Home Networking Division's network chipsets and embedded
A common interconnect connects all of the backplane's functional blocks. These
functional blocks, known as cores, use the ARM AMBA AXI or APB interface to
communicate with devices attached to the interconnect.
The IP cores used in
devices were adapted by Broadcom for compatibility with the new interconnect.
