I have an fxp (EEPro 100+ client) connected to a NetGear 10/100 autosense hub.
I'm trying to use ifconfig's ifmedia support to throttle the card down
to 10Mbit/sec.  The lights on the NetGear still say the card is at 100Mbit,
even though ifconfig says the media type is now 10baseT.

Is this a bug in the MII code, or is what I'm trying to do not
supported by the hardware?
