Subject[PATCH 2.6.35-rc1] net-next: vmxnet3 fixes [3/5] Initialize link state at probe time

Initialize vmxnet3 link state at probe time

This change initializes the state of link at the time when driver is
loaded. The ethtool output for 'link detected' and 'link speed'
is thus valid even before the interface is brought up.
