Thanks, your report/dmesg are welcome.

Lars noticed that the link status is not correctly reported and suggested
a few changes. Can you check if the version below works better ?

Single file patch:



If it does not pass the network init, can you issue
- ifconfig eth0 blah, blah by hand
- mii-tool -vvv eth0

I'll send the whole serie of patches to netdev/akpm.

Jeff, do you want that I publish it in some git repo as well ?
