3. The driver accurately reports AUI-C2C PHY type as KR ethtool link mode.

Due to the continuous development of the Linux kernel, the drivers are updated more often than the bundled releases. The latest driver can be found on http://e1000.sourceforge.net (and also on http://downloadcenter.intel.com).
