 This is the driver for the MAC 10/100/1000 on-chip Ethernet controllers
-(Synopsys IP blocks); it has been fully tested on STLinux platforms.
+(Synopsys IP blocks).
 
 Currently this network device driver is for all STM embedded MAC/GMAC
-(i.e. 7xxx/5xxx SoCs) and it's known working on other platforms i.e. ARM SPEAr.
