Yes, I did read and I'm not for blood...

Please find the patch against 1.0.3 enclosed. I did never write ethernet
drivers and I do not have any documentation on those cards, but knowing about
that mii-diag voodoo the fix is rather obvious and I'm pretty sure I haven't
done anything wrong. The patched driver does work here at my place like a
charm with all the flavours of eepro100 cards in reach (AT-2560TX from Allied
Telesyn inclusive). It does not have any problems with gated-3.5.10 and
multicasting so far (kernel 2.1.125-ac2).

BTW, I did post the unresolved module symbols report for strip.o several
times. Does anyone care to fix it? Is it mainained?
