I thought that's what I was doing when I applied git-e1000 to 
2.6.20-rc5, but I guess not.

I'll try to work something out.

ethtool output attached.

That fixes it! The link comes up and tx/rx works well. I get about 300 
Mbps using default iperf settings with a nearby windows box.

Yep, makes sense. I've worked with a number of PHYs like that.
