I'm seeing a bad media type when sticking a known good, current
rev. Linksys EG1032 into an old Intel AL440LX PPRO-150 board that is
running a -current kernel.

    NetBSD 2.99.10 (WSRCC_INTEL) #3: Mon Nov 15 12:11:17 PST 2004
    skc0 at pci0 dev 17 function 0: irq 9
    skc0: unknown media type: 0x0

This is almost certainly a hardware incompatibility of sorts, but I'm
at a loss exactly what it could be.  The exact same kernel running on
newer hardware sees this board just fine.

The sk card does have PCI notches so it can plug into both 5v and 3v
pci slots, but perhaps this doesn't work quite right or needs some
software support.  Anyone see this before?  Is it a matter of
initializing the card differently when in old hardware?
