This version fixes the occasional hang
 - with certain i82559 chip versions
 - after a self-test (module load or cold boot), and
 - when the driver is compiled for memory space operations (now the default)
   instead of I/O space operations.

The CVS log entry for the update:
v1.12 10/18/2000

Added a write buffer flush when setting the Rx address base to avoid an
apparent firmware bug in the i82559.

Documentation edits.

Renamed the i82562 implementation to "Intel Pro/100 V Network".

Added symbolic names for the high priority Tx queue commands.

Added the ability to force the duplex from an ioctl()
  Added the sp->medialock variable.
  Set sp->advertising by the transceiver when the driver is loaded.
  Set the advertising or forced-duplex flag in mii_ioctl()
