    Yes, 2.6.8.1 with this patch works for me on a JS20. There is a pause
    of maybe 20 seconds when the interface is brough up (while hardware
    autoneg times out?) and then the network comes up (and serial-over-lan
    recovers).

    Unfortunately this patch doesn't apply to the latest bk (3.9) tg3 driver.

    Thanks,
    Roland
