there already was a thread on this topic in summer but with no result:
Adi tracked down, that the messages in the syslog (in my case appearing
exactly every 30 seconds), come from snmpd running on the same machine
This behaviour still exists in 220.127.116.11
I'm neither a skilled C-programmer nor a kernel-expert, but looking at
drivers/net/sundance.c:1605 I see, that SIOCDEVPRIVATE does
nothing else then printing this debug message.
So the questions is: why? What is this good for?
And: can I remove it? I can not abandon snmpd and the messages spam my
Or: do I have to patch snmpd?
-> Please CC: me, I'm not on the list <-
P.S.: there's no one in the MAINTAINERS file for sundance.c. Is someone
here who still cares about this driver?
