I'm using kernel 2.4.4.
The problem is, that I get no link changed interrupt when connecting or
disconnectiong the ethernet. I'm using the DP83846 from National. There is no
hardware interrupt, but it's possible to generate an interrupt flag in a special
Is it possible to get this software interrupt in the fec.c ?
Is there another way to get a link change without a hardware interrupt?
