SubjectRe: PROBLEM: Network hanging - Tulip driver with Netgear (Lite-On)
I think I found the bug:

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:
s/tp->advertising[0]/tp->mii_advertise/g

* remove the new mii_advertise variable and replace it with
'tp->advertising[i]'.

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.
