The current code is supposed to provide via ethtool the same function that
the media option did in Realtek's version of the driver (i.e. mostly a
current 'ethtool -s ethX autoneg off speed foo duplex bar').

Afaik, neither in Realtek's code nor in the current in-kernel driver does
the (obsolescent) "media" code do what one would expect from a "media"
option.
