Experimental version of NAPI for forcedeth.
Untested, but others may want to help with comments and testing.

+	help
+	  NAPI is a new driver API designed to reduce CPU and interrupt load
+	  when the driver is receiving lots of packets from the card. It is
+	  still somewhat experimental and thus not yet enabled by default.
+
+	  If your estimated Rx load is 10kpps or more, or if the card will be
+	  deployed on potentially unfriendly networks (e.g. in a firewall),
+	  then say Y here.
+
+	  See <file:Documentation/networking/NAPI_HOWTO.txt> for more
+	  information.
+
+	  If in doubt, say N.
