I've seen this for ages on 2.4 and 2.6. Seems to be some kind of typo or something in several archs (my Blade 100 shows this in dmesg as well).

What driver?


Sun GEM driver. Looks like it's fixed in 2.6, but 2.4.22/23 on the system had this in dmesg:

sungem.c:v0.97 3/20/02 David S. Miller (
eth%d: MII PHY ID: 437420 Enable Semiconductor
eth0: Sun GEM (PCI) 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet 00:03:ba:04:be:a4

Seen it else where too, Maybe on a 2.4 driver in my x86 box, but that dmesg isn't available anymore to double check.
