The stge device driver supports the Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 Gigabit Eth-
The Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 is found on the D-Link DGE-550T, and the
Antares Microsystems Gigabit Ethernet board. It uses an external PHY or
an external 10-bit interface.
The TC9021 supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware. The stge
driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for informa-
tion on how to enable this feature.

The stge driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6.
The stge driver was written by Jason R. Thorpe <thorpej@NetBSD.org>.
The stge driver does not support the VLAN tag insertion/removal feature
of the TC9021 chip. This is primarily because the TC9021's VLAN do not
have a useful programming interface.
The stge driver does not yet support jumbo Ethernet frames.
The stge driver does not yet function properly with 1000BASE-T fitted
boards. Currently, only 1000BASE-SX boards work.
