NAME
       smc91c92_cs - SMC 91cxx device driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod smc91c92_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [if_port=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION
       Smc91c92_cs  is the low-level Card Services driver for SMC 91c92, 91c94, 91c96, and 91c100
       based PC Card ethernet adapters.  When this driver is attached 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).

       With the default transceiver setting, the driver will attempt to  continuously  autodetect
       the  transceiver  type  (10base2  or 10baseT).  There should normally only be a one or two
       second lag before the correct transceiver is selected.  On particularly noisy or busy net-
       works,  it is possible for the detection logic to incorrectly toggle the transceiver type.
       If this becomes a problem, it may be necessary to explicitly  select  the  interface  type
       when the module is loaded or with the ifport command.

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

       if_port=n
	      Selects the transceiver type.  0 is autodetect (10baseT or 10base2), 1  is  10baseT
	      (twisted	pair),	and  2	is 10base2 (BNC, or thin net).	The default is 0 (autode-
	      tect).

       irq_list=i,j,...
	      Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this driver.

DIAGNOSTICS
       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.
