[Xen-devel] adding device driver kernel module for xen/linux


I wanted to add a kernel module (bcm5700, device driver for Broadcom network adapter) to linux 2.6, xen-3.0.0. Is it possible to use the kernel module (source) as-is, without modifications, or do I need to edit the module source code to be Xen-specific?

I noticed that the files tg3.c and tg3.h on linux-2.6.12-xen is the same as the one on pristine-linux-2.6.12, so presumably, no change is needed. However, using bcm5700 module on linux-2.6.12-xen kernel doesn't work, while using bcm5700 on native linux (on the same machine) works.
