SubjectRe: PATCH: ethtool MII helpers
On Sun, Jun 10, 2001 at 01:34:59PM -0400, Jeff Garzik wrote:

Initial draft of a helper which uses generic elements present in several
net drivers to implement ethtool ioctl support in a minimum amount of
code.

I have included a sample implementation in the epic100 driver, to
illustrate how these helpers may be used. This should make it easier to
implement support across 10/100 hardware which uses primarily an MII
phy.

Comments appreciated.

Can someone explain to me why we have ethtool and mii-tool? Can we
not extend ethtool for the mii-tool stuff, even if only at userland?
