Why 'FEC Ethernet Driver' is not found on L4Linux build menuconfig ?

Hi, adam Thank you for answering. :-) Sorry, I've asked you a question
with misinformation. I've misunderstood that my Freescale imx6q_sabre_sd
board's Ethernet is 'Qualcomm Atheros AR8031-AL1A Gigabit Ethernet'. My
board's Ethernet Controller is contained in imx6 chip. And the driver
for it is 'FEC Ethernet Driver'. So, I have to using ethernet driver
which is 'l4linux/drivers/net/ethernet/freescale'. But, I've failed
configure 'CONFIG_FEC=y' because there is not 'FEC Ethernet Driver' on
L4 linux's build menuconfig. But there are other ethernet drivers which
are 'smsc','intel','marvell'... etc. Though there is 'FEC Ethernet
Driver' source code in 'l4linux/drivers/net/ethernet/freescale', why
'FEC Ethernet Driver' is not found on L4Linux build menuconfig ? How to
build FEC ethernet driver for my board? -Taeung- Message: 3 Date: Wed,

L4Linux has the same drivers as native Linux, so if the driver is in
Linux it is also in L4Linux (in the same version). There seems to be
support for this type of network in the imx6 support code. So does the
network work with the native Linux of the same version?
