Someone (Jeff?) removed the line

tp->advertising[phy_idx++] = reg4;

from tulip/tulip_core.c

pnic_check_duplex uses that variable :-(

There are 2 workarounds:

* change pnic_check_duplex:

* remove the new mii_advertise variable and replace it with

Jeff, is it really a good idea to have one global mii_advertise
variable? If someone builds a card with multiple transceivers, then
they'll probably support different medias.
