SIOCETHTOOL and mii-diag tool will be most likely
be replaced by ethtool.
Havent actually tried coding to it, but this seems to be
the only other replacement since this also supports
Gigabit NIC driver specs. So iam trying out the possibility
that the new drivers might have taken out the support for
the old ioctl's.
In-case it comes handy for someone ...........
