Description of problem:
I'm using RedHat Linux 7.2. Kernel is 2.4.7-10.
8139too driver Load and can be used OK. But when use mii-tool to see the Speed
and Link, it says "no link". My Ethernets are RTL-8139(B/C) (I have two boards).
After used the Donald Becker's rtl8139 driver (v1.16a) to instead of 8139too,
all is OK.
mii-tool says "negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok".
So I think 8139too has a problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe 8139too
Actual Results: mii-tool says "no link", But infact I can use network.
Fixed in recent 8139too drivers. Was an issue specific to mii-tool handling
in the driver.
