Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/2] unify full duplex flow control resolution

4 drivers (tg3, smsc911x, smsc9420 & smsc9500) have identical full 
duplex flow control resolution functions (primarily because I re-used
tg3's implementation for the 3 SMSC drivers).  This patchset moves this 
to an inline function in mii.h and changes the 4 drivers to use it.

It's a small enough function, and it's only used once in each driver,
but I'm still not completely sure inline is right.  These drivers 
don't all have a dependency on mii.c though, and I wanted to avoid 
adding this to the SMSC drivers that have been converted to phylib.

Steve Glendinning (2):
  move flow control definitions to mii.h
  refactor full duplex flow control resolution
