     The axe driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the
     ASIX Electronics AX88172, AX88178, AX88772, AX88772A, AX88772B USB 2.0

     The chip contains a 10/100 Ethernet MAC with MII interface and is
     designed to work with both Ethernet and HomePNA transceivers.  The
     AX88172 and AX88772 contain 10/100 Ethernet MACs with MII interfaces.
     The AX88178 contains a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet MAC with a GMII/MII
     interface.  The chip also supports USB 2.0, thereby accommodating 100
     Mb/s data rates.

     The axe driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect            Enable automatic selection of the media type and

     10baseT/UTP           Set 10Mbps operation.  The mediaopt option can also
                           be used to enable full-duplex operation.  Not spec-
                           ifying full duplex implies half-duplex mode.

     100baseTX             Set 100Mbps (fast Ethernet) operation.  The
                           mediaopt option can also be used to enable
                           full-duplex operation.  Not specifying full duplex
                           implies half-duplex mode.

     1000baseT             Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation (AX88178

     The axe driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex           Force full duplex operation.  The interface will
                           operate in half duplex mode if this media option is
                           not specified.
