rtl8139.c v1.02 is now available from

It fixes the following problems:

  Fixed the multicast filter.  The previous code was using the correct bits,
  but in the reversed order.  Rather than patch, I used a reversed CRC
  calculation.  I also rewrote set_rx_mode() to produce better compiled code.

  Added an atomic clear of dev->tbusy in the transmit routine. 

  Fixed mdio_write(), which was using writel() instead of outb().
  This fixes a problem with setting media types on an RTL8129 using
  mii-diag.  This has no impact on the 8139.
