A french user here has a problem with a SIS900 ethernet and NetBSD 1.6:
basically the MII and PHY are not detected, which cause the adapter
to have erratic behavior. It's a GENERIC kernel, and strange enouth
it doesn't even complain about unconfigured PHY:
sip0 at pci0 dev 3 function 0: SiS 900 10/100 Ethernet, rev 0x90
sip0: interrupting at irq 11
sip0: Ethernet address 00:a0:cc:d3:74:d3
isa0 at pcib0
pckbc0 at isa0 port 0x60-0x64
pckbd0 at pckbc0 (kbd slot)
pckbc0: using irq 1 for kbd slot

Just as if it didn't call mii_attach(). But I looked at the sources, it
seems to call it properly.
Any idea ?
