2001/10/24 ShuChen Shao

1.This driver is based on rtl8139.c version 1.11 written by Donald Becker
  and modified by Clifford Chiang, wrchiang@realtek.com.tw, 
  to support C+ mode operation with Link Down Power Saving 
  and ShuChen Shao, shuchen@realtek.com.tw,
  to support both C and C+ mode operation with Medium type selection.

2.It has been tested in 2.2.14 kernel.

3.RTL8139C+ PCI ethernet chips is set to support C+ mode by default.
  If FORCE_8139CP_TO_C_MODE is enable, the RTL8139C+ chip will be forced to support C mode after reboot.

4.The associated kern_compat.h should be also in the same directory while compiling.
  This object file obtained after compiling rtl8139.c is supposed to be at /lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/net.
