Ok, this is a major enhancement to the current ad-hoc MII handling and 
probably the way to go in the future. My main concern is if/when this patch 
will be applied to the kernel, but until then I'll probably stick with the 
current code, keeping it alive as good as possible.

Is anyone aware of the acceptance/state of that patch or have further info?
