That one works perfectly; i tried it in the same conditions as
the previous patch, and i don't notice a regression.

sis190-010.patch does not compile properly :

# make clean;make;make install
rm -f *.o *.ko .*.cmd .*.flags *.mod.c
make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/data/src/sis190 modules

After that, it compiles and works as expected; i can use netconsole
and get local messages on the other box.

There is something wrong whith sis190-020.patch;
it works, i can use the link as usual, i can use
ethtool :

# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Speed: 100Mb/s
Duplex: Full
Port: MII
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: on
Current message level: 0x00000037 (55)
Link detected: yes
But i get those traces in syslog, when the driver is
loaded and every time i use ethtool :

I also tried to set sis190 mode (eg: 10 full autoneg off), but the driver
froze the box.

As for now mii support seems unstable, i do not play further more with
the media management.
