There is no such config symbol. NET_ETHERNET means 10/100 ethernet.
Gigabit ethernet doesn't use the ETHERNET symbol (and doesn't use
this flavor of MII IIRC).
And all of this config space is surrounded by:

# All the following symbols are dependent on NETDEVICES - do not repeat
# that for each of the symbols.
if NETDEVICES

so it is actually
config MII
depends on NETDEVICES

What do you suggest?
