The whole thing has been somewhat low-priority indeed
given the probable age of some non-MII contenders. OTOH it would be quite sad
(and locally problematic) to see support for those non-MII cards vanish
come 2.6.29.
Subsequently it would then be nice to devise non-MII support
in some structured way that enables us to support them without
much burden (code-wise) on proper standards-supporting MII cards.

Thank you,

Andreas Mohr
