If the messages annoy you, disable that bit using ethtool. It's not
necessary to hack the driver for this.

It's hard to really call that a "hack"...
And do you want to say that you won't be annoyed, if each minute you
have on your console the message:
eth0: 10baseT auto link ok, mode 7ffc2002 status 51c8
I.e. 1440 of the same messages per day... So, will you? Or another
approach: the only one of all the other drivers/net use
NETIF_MSG_TIMER included into xxx_DEF_MSG_ENABLE, and this one is
Tigon3 driver, which is, again, your. And no one else. And this
silence seems to be a some kind of a "normal" behaviour, doesn't it?
And no one of other drivers needs ethtool to be just silent...
Or, may be there are some reasons for such a verbosing, I just don't
And, important: of course, I had to send the patch to you. I'm sorry,
for some reason I decided that the driver is unmaintained for the some
