     The gem driver provides support for various NICs based on the GEM Ether-
     net controller chips, including the following:

           o   Apple GMAC (10/100/1000baseT)
           o   Sun ERI (10/100baseT)
           o   Sun GEM (10/100/1000baseT)
           o   Sun GEM (1000baseSX)

     It uses an external PHY or an external 10-bit interface.

     The gem driver 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 1000baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                  Use 1000baseT on copper, full duplex

           media 1000baseT [mediaopt half-duplex]
                  Use 1000baseT on copper, half duplex

           media 1000baseSX mediaopt full-duplex
                  Use 1000baseSX on fiber, full duplex

           media 1000baseSX [mediaopt half-duplex]
                  Use 1000baseSX on fiber, half duplex

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

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

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

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