Need to test new patch for freebsd
I saw a report that covers FreeBSD-related projects between October and December 2010 and I observe that it have new patch for Ethernet Switch Framework, I have also seen a little bit inside the code of patch(http://loos.no-ip.org/rspro/switch-1.diff
I downloaded fresh code of FreeBSD v9 and apply command [b]git apply switch-1.diff[/b] but it shows me these errors:
switch.diff:397: trailing whitespace.
printf(" phy %d ", ifmr.ifm_phy);
switch.diff:445: trailing whitespace.
printb("options", ifswr.ifsw_flags, IFSWBITS);
switch.diff:486: trailing whitespace.
printf(" vlans: ");
switch.diff:869: trailing whitespace.
switch.diff:1826: trailing whitespace.
