This file describes the EFI diagnostic tool for 3Com's Gigabit Server BCM5700 Network Interface Card. The tool is
released as a standard EFI application format.
1. b57diag32.efi: BCM570X diagnostic for IA32 EFI platform.
2. b57diag64.efi: BCM570X diagnostic for IA64 EFI platform.

diagnostic tests on all BCM570X NICs installed in the system.
For addition options, run "b57diag64 -help". In IA32 environment,
Version 1.0.0 (06/01/01) -- First Release.
Version 1.1.0 (07/01/01) -- Renamed it to b57diag.efi
-- Included IA64 port
-- Confirmed eeprom programming functionality
-- Tested with BCM5701 A0 cards
Version 1.1.1 (07/06/01) -- Resolved CQ1896: fixed Group A or B test
failures on HP IA64.
-- Eliminated the intermittent lockup problem
just before running Group D tests.
Version 1.1.2 (07/20/01) -- Resolved CQ2084: fixed B5 test failure on
an IA64 with 4 GB of RAM. The top 32 bit of
some 64-bit pointer is no longer zero. The

it should be included as one of the options (-mac xxxxxxxxxxxx).
