Hi all (again).

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a minor flaw in the stock
ucd-snmp daemon that comes with Redhat 7.3.  When run on a Dell 2650,
running 'snmpwalk localhost public interfaces' shows the link speed as
only 10 meg, while mii-tool and everything else I could find to read the
NIC speed says it's been autoneg'd at 100 meg.  These Dells have the
Broadcom 5701 10/100/1000 NICs and use the tg3 driver.
