SMSC LAN91C111 *does* still exist on ISA platforms (for example PC104),
Luotao is right: the smc91x driver support for it is broken.

I have one here on an ISA board (and it took me a long time to find
working PC
hardware old enough to use this!). I'll send a patch when I can find time
fix it, but until then I agree this broken code should be removed.
