Description of problem:
When I boot, eth0 never successfully comes up. It is configured, I'll attach
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in a minute. If I run dhclient at the
command line after boot, it sets up eth0 as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Watch eth0 fail to init
Expected Results: eth0 should pull an IP over DHCP
Relevant line from boot.log: Oct 13 18:20:44 hermit ifup: failed; no link
present. Check cable?

The driver module is 3c59x.
The driver appears to not be reporting link status correctly.
