the standard one.

These are included in the mail, starting this thread. An open question
was, if the configure script should compare the netX driver version
with $linuxversion or $kernelrelease. As a patched kernel really is
required (with the full version string $kernelrelease=2.6.20-rt1-netx1)
one could argue to use $kernelrelease (which I did the first time).
But as in this version string also the preempt patches (-rt1) are
included (but not required), I made another patch (attached to this
mail) which uses $linuxversion.

Sounds good.

Best regards
