    I remembered other artikel about gig-E problems, so after re-reading
    this cured it:
    ****************
    From: walt <wa1ter@myrealbox.com>
    [1] Gigabit Kconfig problems with yesterday's update
    Distribution: cistron

    I have one machine with a gigabit NIC which I updated today from Linus'
    bk tree.

    The problem is that I was not asked if I wanted the 'new' gigabit
    support and therefore the tg3 support was dropped from my new .config.

    I edited .config by hand and deleted any mention of ethernet support --
    and only then did 'make oldconfig' ask me the right questions.

    Also: the phrase (10 or 100Mbit) should be deleted from the 'Ethernet'
    menu item since it implies (wrongly) that the item is not needed for
    gigabit support.
