Subject: Re: [patch 2.6.24-git] net/enc28j60: low power mode

let me repeat what I said in previous mail.
I propose you to add set_lowpower(true) in the enc28j60_probe() and in 
the enc28j60_net_close() after enc28j60_hw_disable().
Probably we don't need to set_lowpower(false) in enc28j60_net_open() since
it performs a soft reset with enc28j60_hw_init() (not sure).

Furthermore, as you suggested, we also need to remove hw_init() from the 
because hw_init() is called when we bring link up.

Can you update your low power patch with these modifications?
