HPE Proliant Gen9 server with Linux kernel 4.10.1 - question on ethernet driver

Hi, For a requirment, we are considering deploying Linux (kernel 4.10.1) from kernel.org on HPE Proliant DL360 Gen 9 (with HPE 331FLR/331T Ethernet adapter). While going through the kernel configuration options, for network device driver support, we do not find explicit support for the Broadcom chipset BCM5710 adapter. However we find support for other broadcom adaptors listed below.

i. Broadcom 440x/47xx Ethernet support
ii. Broadcom ENET internal MAC support
iii. QLogic bnx2 support
iv. QLogic CNIC support
v. Broadcom Tigon3 support
vi. Broadcom NetXtremeII 10 Gb support
vii. Broadcom NetXtreme-C/E support

Can we assume that support for the chipset bcm5710 is covered in the above drivers?

Also are there any known considerations or limitations from HPE Proliant DL360 Gen9 point of view while configuring Linux kernel 4.10.1. I am aware that 4.10.1 was made widely available late february 2017, but if there is anyone who has something to tell about this version, it would be helpful. 

Thanks
