Subject: Patch for 2.6.27-r3; needed for r8169 to compile
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2008 22:42:23 -0500
Greetings, gentoo-sources maintainers!

 The following patch fixes ERROR: "mii_ethtool_gset"
 [drivers/net/r8169.ko] undefined!
 Please add this to the -r3 patchset if possible (otherwise -r3 and -r4
 for 2.6.27.6 is excessive).

 From LKML:

 Hi,

  The r8169 module needs the MII hardware support library.

 Here is a patch for the drivers/net/Kconfig

 Jean.
