FYI, a major telecommuniation company paid for independent laboratory
certifcation of this driver (and Linux) under a variety of performance
and error conditions.  After a couple of iterations, it passed the
certification testing and I believe all of the modifications are in
this driver (at least it was my intention to ensure they are public).
I don't remember which PHY was used for the testing, but please don't
attack this as a "can't possibly work" problem and start hacking it up.
