ah!   FYI apropos mii-tool:  quoted from:  

mii-tool was written for 10/100 hardware only (hardware with MII phys).
    ethtool interface can support all hardware.  If you have gigabit, and
mii-tool actually works, consider yourself quite lucky :)  In that case
the driver author decided to make an attempt at emulating MII in the
driver.  So, using mii-tool on a gigabit NIC is:  programming a gigabit
card like a 10/100 hardware interface it doesn't support :)
