now that the deal with cavium is official, which side the heads will roll ? i think there is enough distinction of expertise in both companies but somewhere someone has to let go to improve the financial status for years ahead, right ?

Lots of redundancy at the corporate level (HR, legal, accounting, IT, etc) which is where the axe falls first. Marvell sells into a lot of commodity markets while Cavium does not. Cavium adds the "s-x appeal" back that Marvell lost.
Cavium's product line makes its eng look stronger and makes high end chips and it wud be stupid if Marvell cannot use them to complement the revenue growth..and cavium's employee strength is less..tough call to make for Marvell i think..as most of times the buying company never layoffs its own..
esp. if u see the overlapping areas of SoC market..so likely those teams will get hit apart from others
