    DESCRIPTION

         The miibus driver provides an interconnection between the Media Access
         Control (MAC) sublayer, the Physical Layer entities (PHY), Station Man-
         agement (STA) entities, and the PHY Layer as defined by the IEEE 802.3
         Standard.
    
         The miibus layer allows network device drivers to share common support
         code for various external PHY devices.  Most 10/100 network interface
         cards either use an MII transceiver or have built-in transceivers that
         can be programmed using an MII interface.  The miibus driver currently
         handles all of the media detection, selection, and reporting using the
         ifmedia interface.  A generic driver has been included for all PHYs that
         are not handled by a specific driver, this is possible because all 10/100
         PHYs implement the same general register set along with their vendor spe-
         cific register set.
    
         The following network device drivers use the miibus interface:
