	I have a box with an (unused!) netgear (sip driver) card that
	occasionally fails to initialise properly.  What I see is:

	sip1 at pci0 dev 3 function 0: NatSemi DP83815 10/100 Ethernet
	sip1: interrupting at irq 2
	sip1: Ethernet address 00:02:e3:02:30:51
	ukphy1 at sip1 phy 0: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
	ukphy1: OUI 0x1000e8, model 0x0002, rev. 1
	ukphy1: 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX
	ifmedia_set: no match for 0x20/0xffffffff
	panic: ifmedia_set
	Stopped in pid 0 (swapper) at   cpu_Debugger+0x10:      lwz r0, r1, 0x14,

	I think it's a little too brutal just to call panic here, the
	card should just fail to configure.

	Not sure.  Reboot a walnut with a sip card often?!

	None given.
