Subjecte1000e: repeated eth0: Error reading PHY register
On my Thinkpad X201s running 3.3-rc1 I'm seeing bursts of these:

[ 1270.207370] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Error reading PHY register
[ 1271.003042] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Error reading PHY register
[ 1271.798896] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Error reading PHY register
[ 1272.595324] e1000e 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Error reading PHY register

I've been seeing these messages for a few kernel versions, but
unfortunately due to a hardware failure I don't have kernels further
back than 3.0. I'm pretty sure this didn't happen on 2.6.38.

There are nearly always exactly 12 messages (I have one log sequence
where there are only 5, out of 110 occurrences), and they come every 300
seconds during some period, then they go away for a long time, then come
back with no clear cause.

% dmesg | grep PHY | uniq -w4 -c

(the clock is currently at 3636.)

The machine is on and off of AC power, and suspended with "sudo
pm-suspend" then resumed, on a regular basis; there doesn't seem to be
any clear correlation.

There's nothing plugged into the ethernet jack when this happens. (I
don't use wired ethernet often enough to be sure if it happens when the
wire is connected; there doesn't seem to be any impact on
functionality on the rare occasion I do use it.)
