some time ago, there was a discussion as to how to store default media
settings on a network card.
I've written demo code for manipulating the rtl8019 eeprom and can implement
such an ioctl for the interface driver.
Was there a conclusion as to what exactly the semantics should be?
- save current media state as precise as possible?
- store a specified set of settings?
Personally, I tend to the former...
