Description

Late last summer I wrote a preliminary driver for the AWS Nitro ENA network device (Elastic Network Adapter). Support for this virtual device allows illumos-based distros to run on the "newer" AWS Nitro instances, which offer much beefier configurations than the older Xen-based instances. I have a working driver with good throughput (even without doing the typical performance tricks required for higher rate NICs), but I'm still working on some polish before I put it up for CR. I just wanted to add this placeholder in to let others know this work is upcoming.
