     options MIIVERBOSE

     Media Independent Interface is an IEEE standard serial bus for connecting MACs (network con-
     trollers) to PHYs (physical media interfaces).  The mii layer allows network device drivers
     to share support code for various PHY models, and allows unused support for PHYs which are
     not present in a system to be removed from the kernel.

     Network device drivers which use the mii layer carry the ``mii'' autoconfiguration
     attribute.  This allows kernel configuration files to simply specify PHYs as described above
     in the synopsis.

     The following is an example of the messages displayed when a network interface with an
     attached PHY is detected by the kernel:

	   epic0 at pci0 dev 12 function 0: SMC EPIC/100 Fast Ethernet
	   epic0: interrupting at kn20aa irq 4
	   epic0: SMC9432TX, Ethernet address 00:e0:29:07:17:c4
	   qsphy0 at epic0 phy 3: QS6612 10/100 media interface, rev. 1
	   qsphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

     All PHY drivers display the media types supported by the PHY when it is detected by the ker-
     nel.  These media types are valid media keywords for use with the ifconfig(8) program.
