Hm, I reported few times problems with DS21143 Tulip rev 65, which is
not exactly old, and with anything above tulip-0.9.14, and did not get
back even a half line acknowledment not mentioning annoucements of fixes.
I also posted mii-diag output from a card in working and not working

I have to admit, though, that I did not test that really recently.
