At http://www.nsls.bnl.gov/facility/expsys/software/EPICS/
, we added the mvme5500 BSP which is updated to be RTEMS4.7.pre0
compatible under the item "RTEMS-4.7.pre0-MVME5500 BSP".
There is no function change in the BSP except
that it contains more accurate information regarding copyright.
It does not imply that the RTEMS4.7.pre0 or the current released
RTEMS4.7.0 operating system is stable. I thought I will get to test
RTEMS4.7.0 within the next two weeks.  However, please understand
that I realized that I have too many other higher
priority tasks to do.

The 1GHz network driver could be easily added to the RTEM4.7.0 branch
since it's 4.7.x compatible and its performance was published a long
time ago.  I thought the RTEMS commonly used network code originated
from dec21140.c :
"Copyright (C) 1999 Emmanuel Raguet. raguet at crf.canon.fr "

or from other unknown RTEMS network driver, which was written before

If you have disagreement, questions or issues, please feel free to
to this RTEMS mailing list.
