I'll do my best - a kernel update is certainly not possible on this particular 
machine, simply because it is a user workstation that is actually being 
used ;)

Also, mii-tool doesn't appear to be included anywhere in this (SuSE 10.2 x64) 
installation, so I'll have to look into building this from source.

Meanwhile, a new bit of information that maybe gives a hint: 

ethtool -d shows reg 0x6C "PHY status" changes from 0x6b (erroneous 100TX 
link) to 0x73 (correct 1000TX link). What ethtool dumps aren't MII registers, 
so I doubt that this tells us anything useful, but here it is anyway.

Bonne nuit!

Peter
