Ahhh!  That I haven't done.  Sorry, I probably should have been
clearer about this...

The problem I'm having with the eepro100 in the T22 is that it won't
come back after a suspend (to disk) no matter what I do.  This is the
case even if the interface has been taken down, but the module has not
been unloaded.  I have to reboot to get the interface back.

On suspend I simply down the builtin ethernet (ifdown eth0) and then
bring it back up when I resume (ifup eth0).  This is usually
appropriate, since this is the most common network interface that I
use.  In my post-down I do "/sbin/modprobe -r eepro100" and on up the
module is automatically loaded via modules.conf stuff...

peace & happiness,
