I'm interested to hear why you think this is better than listing the
card under both of the 100 and 1000 Mbit categories (as the patch I
sent does it). Also, we are not talking about one 10/100/1000 card,
we are talking about one driver that supports two separate cards, one
10/100/1000 and one 10/100.
