     The epic interface provides access to the 10Mb/s and 100Mb/s Ethernet
     networks via the SMC EPIC chipset.  This driver provides support for the
     SMC EtherPower II 10/100 Ethernet cards.

     The epic supports several media types, which are selected via the
     ifconfig(8) command.  The supported media types are:

           media autoselect
                   Attempt to autoselect the media type (default)

           media 100baseFX mediaopt full-duplex
                   Use 100baseFX (fiber), full duplex

           media 100baseFX [mediaopt half-duplex]
                   Use 100baseFX (fiber), half duplex

           media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
                   Use 100baseTX, full duplex

           media 100baseTX [mediaopt half-duplex]
                   Use 100baseTX, half duplex

           media 100baseTX mediaopt loopback
                   Put the interface into loopback mode

           media 10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                   Use 10baseT, full duplex

           media 10baseT [mediaopt half-duplex]
                   Use 10baseT, half duplex

           media 10baseT mediaopt loopback
                   Put the interface into loopback mode

     acphy(4), arp(4), ifmedia(4), inet(4), intro(4), lxtphy(4), netintro(4),
     pci(4), qsphy(4), hostname.if(5), ifconfig(8)

     The epic device driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.  OpenBSD support was
     added in OpenBSD 3.8.

     The epic driver was written by Jason R. Thorpe
     <thorpej@wasabisystems.com> and ported to OpenBSD by Brad Smith
