    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.
