Description of problem:
The Tigon3 (tg3.o) driver does not use any of the more useful module parameters.
The three I'm referring to are 'full_duplex', 'speed' and 
'autonegotiation'. Of course, one can use ethtool after the module has loaded
but I've got some customers here who really need this to be done at module load

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Just run modinfo on the module:
/sbin/modinfo /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/tg3.o
and you will see that it only supports a debugging parameter.    

Additional info:
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-09-12 03:58:02 EDT
not a bug;
just put
post-install tg3 ethtool ......
in /etc/modules.conf and ethtool gets run at module load time.
