    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.
