Thank you! This is exactly what I was hoping to hear.

As for the performance, you probably won't really notice a too big difference because the IOP is really slow (and the in-game network protocol stack is slow anyway, because Jimmikaelkael was saving RAM). :/
(But you may notice improved performance in games that suffer when the IOP is heavily loaded, since now the DMAC will be copying the data to and from the SMAP interface, instead of the IOP)
I'll also like to hear from those users who have previously complained that OPL had issues with autonegotiation, when used with their network equipment. This includes if they had to fix the speed and/or duplex settings, just to get it to communicate properly.
