Mark,

 I picked up if_npe.c from Jerzy's mail as am not seeing it in any other
place/CVS.
Also, have downloaded the microcode(IxNpeMicrocode.c) from the link you
have suggested below.

But the epk you mentioned contains only the RedBoot Pre-Built Binaries
(includes NPE Ethernet support).
Since my aim is to get the NPE eth working on my regular image, this
would not be helpful.

Now,the only missing link in my puzzle is the access library.
Is there any ecos access library (which intel must have ported for its
ecos redboot binary) that can be used or I have to port the whole access
library to ecos?.

Regards,
Vijay

After registration/login you can get to the NPE driver code (eCos .epk)
and microcode. The same driver works for all IXP4xx family. It is a
RedBoot-only driver, but I may have an opportunity to add interrupt
support (Jerzy did this for an earlier version) to the official Intel
package in the near future.
