sip -- SiS 900-based Ethernet driver
sip* at pci? dev ? function ?
Configuration of PHYs is also necessary. See mii(4).
The sip device driver supports Ethernet interfaces based on the Silicon
Integrated Systems SiS 900, SiS 7016, and National Semiconductor DP83815
The SiS 900 is found on many motherboards featuring SiS chipsets, and on
some embedded systems, and has a built-in PHY. The SiS 7016 is an older
version of the chip, which uses an external PHY.
The National Semiconductor DP83815 is found on NetGear FA-311 and FA-312
Ethernet boards, and has a built-in PHY.
