None yet. I'm using the 3c59x driver `3c59x.c:v0.28c-all 9/22/96' from Donald Becker's home page with
2.0.27 and it seems to work O.K. with a 3c905 Boomerang. I get the
following messages when initializing the interface at boot:

eth0: Initial media type MII.
eth0: vortex_open() InternalConfig 016302d8.
eth0: vortex_open() irq 10 media status 8c02.
eth0: Media selection timer tick happened, MII.
eth0: Media MII is has no indication, 8c02.
eth0: Media selection timer finished, MII.
