     ena -- FreeBSD kernel driver for Elastic Network Adapter (ENA) family

     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in the
     kernel configuration file:

	   device ena

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):


     The ENA is	a networking interface designed	to make	good use of modern CPU
     features and system architectures.

     The ENA device exposes a lightweight management interface with a minimal
     set of memory mapped registers and	extendable command set through an Ad-
     min Queue.

     The driver	supports a range of ENA	devices, is link-speed independent
     (i.e., the	same driver is used for	10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, etc.), and	has a
     negotiated	and extendable feature set.

     Some ENA devices support SR-IOV.  This driver is used for both the	SR-IOV
     Physical Function (PF) and	Virtual	Function (VF) devices.

     The ENA devices enable high speed and low overhead	network	traffic	pro-
     cessing by	providing multiple Tx/Rx queue pairs (the maximum number is
     advertised	by the device via the Admin Queue), a dedicated	MSI-X inter-
     rupt vector per Tx/Rx queue pair, and CPU cacheline optimized data	place-

     The ena driver supports industry standard TCP/IP offload features such as
     checksum offload and TCP transmit segmentation offload (TSO).  Receive-
     side scaling (RSS)	is supported for multi-core scaling.

     The ena driver and	its corresponding devices implement health monitoring
     mechanisms	such as	watchdog, enabling the device and driver to recover in
     a manner transparent to the application, as well as debug logs.

     Some of the ENA devices support a working mode called Low-latency Queue
     (LLQ), which saves	several	more microseconds.  This feature will be im-
     plemented for driver in future releases.

     Supported PCI vendor ID/device IDs:

     +o	 1d0f:0ec2 - ENA PF
     +o	 1d0f:1ec2 - ENA PF with LLQ support
     +o	 1d0f:ec20 - ENA VF
