Check out the driver documentation in the Documentation/networking subdir
of the kernel source. (I haven't used this one but I remembered something
about it when I was looking for info on a tulip driver.) Here is a small
Command line arguments are now allowed, similar to passing arguments
through LILO. This will allow a per adapter board set up of full duplex
and media. The only lexical constraints are: the board name (dev->name)
appears in the list before its parameters. The list of parameters ends
either at the end of the parameter list or with another board name. The
following parameters are allowed:
fdx for full duplex
autosense to set the media/speed; with the following
TP, TP_NW, BNC, AUI, BNC_AUI, 100Mb, 10Mb, AUTO
Case sensitivity is important for the sub-parameters. They *must* be
upper case. Examples:
insmod de4x5 args='eth1:fdx autosense=BNC eth0:autosense=100Mb'.
For a compiled in driver, in linux/drivers/net/CONFIG, place e.g.
DE4X5_OPTS = -DDE4X5_PARM='"eth0:fdx autosense=AUI eth2:autosense=TP"'
Hope that helps.
