8xx FEC: test for fep->link ???

Hi there,

the (old) version of arch/ppc/8xx_io/fec.c I have contains

         if (!fep->link) {
                 /* Link is down or autonegotiation is in progress. */
                 return 1;

in fec_enet_start_xmit().

The recent BitKeeper version does _not_ test this.

Why? Is it not nessessary anymore? Because of the introduced
start/stop_mii_queue() maybe???

Thanks a million,
