       pcnet_cs - generic NS8390-based PCMCIA Ethernet Driver

       insmod	 pcnet_cs.o    [pc_debug=n]   [irq_list=i,j,...]    [if_port=n]   [full_duplex=n]
       [use_big_buf=n]	  [use_shmem=n]     [mem_speed=n]     [delay_output=n]	   [delay_time=n]

       Pcnet_cs is a driver for all NS8390-based PCMCIA ethernet cards.  It can use either polled
       IO or a shared memory window to exchange data with the card.  The driver first tests for a
       shared  memory  buffer,	falling  back  on  polled IO if the memory test fails.	When this
       driver is bound to a card, it allocates the next available ethernet  device  (eth0..eth#).
       This device name will be reported in the kernel log file, and passed on to cardmgr(8).

	      Selects the PCMCIA debugging level.  This parameter is only available if the module
	      is compiled with debugging enabled.  A non-zero value enables debugging.

	      Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this driver.

	      Selects the transceiver type, for Socket EA and  IBM  CCAE  cards.   1  is  10baseT
	      (twisted pair), and 2 is 10base2 (BNC, or thin net).  The default is 1 (10baseT).

	      For  DL10022  based  cards where pcnet_cs can't find the MII interface, this option
	      permits manual control of the duplex setting.  1 is full	duplex,  and  0  is  half
	      duplex; the default is 0.

	      For  Socket  EA  cards,  a flag indicating if the driver should use the large (64K)
	      packet buffer.  The default is 1 (true).

	      Selects shared memory versus polled IO mode for packet transfers.  The  default  is
	      -1, meaning to use the card's CIS information to decide.

	      Sets  the access speed of the shared memory window, in nanoseconds.  The default is
	      0 (i.e., no extra wait states).  Values of up to 1000 are legal.

	      Specifies that a delay should be inserted after a polled IO block output.  This  is
	      turned on by default for Accton and Socket EA cards.

	      Specifies the length of the delay_output delay, in microseconds.	The default is 4.

	      For  cards  whose  hardware  ethernet  addresses can't be identified by the current
	      driver, this is a hack for hardwiring a specific address.  The argument should con-
	      sist  of exactly six byte-sized numbers, separated by commas, with no spaces.  Num-
	      bers may be in decimal or hex ('0xNN').

       pcnet_cs: this is an AX88190 card!
	      Indicates that this card is based on the Asix AX88190 chipset, which  requires  the
	      axnet_cs driver.

       eth#: interrupt(s) dropped!
	      Indicates  that  the driver did not receive an interrupt notification for some rea-
	      son.  The driver will poll the card (with a significant performance penalty) if the
	      problem  persists.   The	most  likely  cause  is an interrupt conflict and/or host
	      bridge configuration problem.

       eth#: MII is missing!
	      Indicates that the driver expects this card to have a  ``Media  Independent  Inter-
	      face'' for link speed and duplex selection, but could not find it.
