    You should use netif_carrier_{on|off} to notify the upper layer of a
    link change/loss (until the otherwise is true). Check the 8139cp driver.

    Also, you shouldn't need the timer stuff to keep track of link change.
    Just the mii_check_media and netif_carrier_{on|off} and you should be fine.
