I have two 3com 3c905C-TX NICs in my linux box.
I remember that mii-tool used to work.

Now, with 2.6.0-test9-bk8 it does not.

dns:~# mii-tool
SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: Operation not supported
SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth1' failed: Operation not supported
no MII interfaces found

What might be going on here? Did we have any recent changes in this,
or maybe my software's outdated, or NICs broken ?
It's Debian Sarge.

Most likely you need to recompile mii-tool, because it's using old ioctls.
