I am sorry for delay.

Now I am testing for same problem with  2.6.27-rc6.:
1. On different MYSON Technology Inc SURECOM EP-320X-S 100/10M
Ethernet PCI Adapters
2. On different Linux PCs
3. With different Ethernet switches which supports 100 Mb
4. With different CAT 5 ethernet cables which supports 100 Mb
5. Also checking old patches on fealnx as per Jeff.

And it seems, I am getting following error, with few ethernet switches
and cables and when I switch ethernet cables  :
"NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0 (fealnx): transmit timed out
eth0: Transmit timed out, status 00000000, resetting..."

Now I am trying to confirm that problem is coming from ethernet
switches and cables.

I am also facing one more Issue :

With same 100 Mb ethernet switch and cable my another NIC run at 100
Mb/s and full duplex but MYSON Technology Inc SURECOM EP-320X-S
100/10M runs on 10 Mb/s and half duplex.

I debug fealnx it says : PHYType 1 duplex_mode : 2 line_speed : 2
crvalue : 0xe40e61 bcrvalue : 0x10 imrvalue : 0x46c flags : 0x1

So it is saying duplex_mode : 2 (full duplex) and line_speed = 2
(100M) then why I am getting 10MB half duplex ?
