Subject: SPARC sysfs dev eth flags vs. ethtool
Date: Wed, 27 May 2009 11:41:40 -0800
Seems quiet, so I'll through this out:

trying to remotely troubleshoot an ethernet link issue, and have come
across an issue
where my sbus happy-meal quad card is reporting a link-state of up, even
with no
network cable plugged in.

Also, the net 'state'  always stays unknown, even on the primary link
that is up/up and working.

granted, all of this is from the sysfs  point of view.

Using ethtool, however, the status appears to be correct; not quite sure
why the two sides of the coin
are out of sync....


anyway, not a big problem, just a 2cents...
