    Subjecttulip reports incorrect statistics in /proc/net/dev
    Hi,

    I have been using a Digital DS21140 Tulip for the last week or so and I
    noticed that the 2.1.105 kernel reports incorrect statistics:

    /proc/net/dev

    Inter-| Receive | Transmit
    face |bytes packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast|bytes packets errs drop fifo colls carrier compressed
    eth0:66752478 71986 0 0 0 0 0 0 3724271 0 52627 0 0 0 52627 0

    Notice that all transmits are recorded as errors & carrier errors
    although the network works 100%.

    In addition to those wrong statistics, everytime the interface is
    ifconfig up'd, these kernel messages are being displayed. Don't know if
    they are related or just debug information.

    Jul 12 12:25:25 vortex kernel: eth0: Using user-specified media MII.
    Jul 12 12:25:27 vortex kernel: eth0: MII monitoring tick: CSR12 ffffff00, MII status 780d, Link partner report 0000.

    I don't feel comfortable in debugging network drivers, I bet someone
    here does. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
