It's entirely possible the card has a different polarity for the phy bits
as compared to the fibre card (Netgear) that the driver is already tested
on. Also, I've only managed to test on a cisco switch -- is there any
other hardware you can test against (ie using the fibre cable for cross
over) to narrow things down? Enabling debug and dumping the status bits
might hint as to what has to be changed. Thankfully Trendnet seems to
have programmed the subsystem id, so I'll be able to include the change
