I can set the link speed and duplex fine using the "media=..." parameter on insmod.
My ADSL router doesn't have an interface (GUI or CLI) for setting the port speed and duplex. A Linksys WRT54GS wireless router is turning up tomorrow, so I may be able to set the port speed & duplex with that. But for now I can't test autodetection when the switch offers less than 100Mbps full-duplex. I also have no GigE equipment to test with.
If I try setting the speed & duplex using something like this:
ethtool -s eth0 speed 10 duplex half
it fails. I get no errors, but the "ethtool eth0" shows the link speed & duplex to be 100Mbps full-duplex. I think I managed to get it into 100Mbps half-duplex once
When I try to "ethtool -s eth0 speed 10", the link lights on my ADSL router change to orange, which indicates 10Mbps. Then the light goes out and comes back green, which indicates 100Mbps.
So maybe the driver isn't waiting long enough for something.
Attached is the patch against 2.6.11-rc1. I'm not sure if it caters to your tastes. Maybe you'll want to rename RTL_GIGA_MAC_VER_X.
