NAME

       init_etherdev -  Register ethernet device

SYNOPSIS

       struct   net_device   *  init_etherdev  (struct  net_device  *dev,  int
       sizeof_priv);

ARGUMENTS

       dev          An ethernet device structure to be filled in, or NULL if a
                   new struct should be allocated.

       sizeof_priv    Size   of  additional  driver-private  structure  to  be
                   allocated for this ethernet device

DESCRIPTION

       Fill in the  fields  of  the  device  structure  with  ethernet-generic
       values.

       If  no  device  structure is passed, a new one is constructed, complete
       with a private data area of size  sizeof_priv.   A  32-byte  (not  bit)
       alignment is enforced for this private data area.

       If  an  empty string area is passed as dev->name, or a new structure
       is made, a new name string is constructed.
