new ebuild for nforce-net with kernel detection

I wrote a new nforce-net-1.0.256-r1.ebuild to take the new patch in account

I hope i did the attachment right.

I forgot to say you have to put the patch in .../nforce-net/file/nvnet.2.5-1.diff
do make the ebuild work.

... And here is the patch.  Works great for me, BTW (2.6.0-test6-mm4).

The ebuild's filename has to be "nforce-net-1.0.0256.ebuild" to work. The
patch applies fine and the module loads, but it doesn't seem to work. I can
set the IP address and bring the interface up, but it doesn't seem to do
any transmitting or receiving.

The NIC works under Linux 2.4.20 with the nvnet module.
