It seems to have been removed during a clean up

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=f860b0522f65d3a0f8e6a4d908933737e1a82817

You can of course still find it here
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/net/pci-
skeleton.c;h=c0f23376a462a20fe1a7450782dabe9eca2fe95c;hb=531c4f896ca380812c22841e8ae396428a3327bf

But as the note indicates, it might be outdated a bit - "Essential Linux 
Device Drivers" in "Chapter 15. Network Interface Cards" by Sreekrishnan 
Venkateswaran uses the e1000 driver as a reference - maybe that helps.


Thanks,
Peter
