mii-tool support for gmac/sungem

I wanted to know if mii-tool was supposed to work with the gmac/sungem
card in the iBook2 laptops. I tried it out:

$ sudo mii-tool
SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: Operation not supported
SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth1' failed: Operation not supported
no MII interfaces found

I see code for this ioctl in the kernel though in gem_ioctl
(drivers/net/sungem.c) and some messages that seem relevant in dmesg:

eth0: MII PHY ID: 4061e0 BCM 5221
eth0: switching to forced 100bt
eth0: switching to forced 10bt

Any ideas ?
