Description Roy Marples (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-23 03:06:39 UTC
via velocity kernel module does not raise events when link status changes. Also, it is incorrectly set to "up" when there is no cable in when the module first loads.

I've submitted a patch referrenced above to the kernel bugzilla which has been accepted into the netdev kernel.
