NAME
     msk — Marvell/SysKonnect Yukon II Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device miibus
	   device msk

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   if_msk_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The msk device driver provides support for various NICs based on the Mar‐
     vell/SysKonnect Yukon II Gigabit Ethernet controller chip.

     All NICs supported by the msk driver have TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload for
     transmit, TCP segmentation offload (TSO), hardware VLAN tag strip‐
     ping/insertion features and an interrupt moderation mechanism as well as
     a 64-bit multicast hash filter.  The Yukon II supports TBI (ten bit
     interface) and GMII transceivers, which means it can be used with either
     copper or 1000baseX fiber applications.

     The Yukon II also supports Jumbo Frames (up to 9022 bytes), which can be
     configured via the interface MTU setting.	Selecting an MTU larger than
     1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8) utility configures the adapter to receive
     and transmit Jumbo Frames.

     The msk driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect	  Enable autoselection of the media type and options.  The
		  user can manually override the autoselected mode by adding
		  media options to rc.conf(5).

     10baseT/UTP  Set 10Mbps operation.	 The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can
		  also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex
		  modes.

     100baseTX	  Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.  The ifconfig(8)
		  mediaopt option can also be used to select either
		  full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseTX	  Set 1000baseTX operation over twisted pair.  The ifconfig(8)
		  mediaopt option can also be used to select either
		  full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseSX	  Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation.  Both full-duplex
		  and half-duplex modes are supported.

     The msk driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force full duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force half duplex operation.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

LOADER TUNABLES
     Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or
     stored in loader.conf(5).

     hw.msk.msi_disable
	     This tunable disables MSI support on the Ethernet hardware.  The
	     default value is 0.

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     The following variables are available as both sysctl(8) variables and
     loader(8) tunables:

     dev.mskc.%d.int_holdoff
	     Maximum number of time to delay interrupts.  The valid range is 0
	     to 34359738 for 125MHz clock in units of 1us, the default is 100
	     (100us).  The interface need to be brought down and up again
	     before a change takes effect.

     dev.mskc.%d.process_limit
	     Maximum amount of Rx events to be processed in the event loop
	     before rescheduling a taskqueue.  The accepted range is 30 to
	     256, the default value is 128 events.  The interface does not
	     need to be brought down and up again before a change takes
	     effect.

HISTORY
     The msk driver was written by Pyun YongHyeon ⟨yongari@FreeBSD.org⟩ and it
     is based on sk(4) and Marvell's FreeBSD driver.  It first appeared in
     FreeBSD 7.0 and FreeBSD 6.3.
