solved. thanx!
    LINT added an explanation of the miibus driver requirement.
    I did the basic configuration from the 17 Apr LINT file and
    missed the change when I updated, even though I diff LINT
    when it updates. see diff below.
    As they say: RTFS...        carefully.
        attila out!
    No, I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it!

You need the device mii or miibus in your kernel config file, and I think
it generates it.

Look at a GENERIC near the dc driver in the later releases, and you'll see
it added, or grep for mii in LINT/GENERIC.
