       bfe - Device driver for Broadcom BCM4401 100Base-T NIC

       The  bfe	 Fast  Ethernet	 driver is GLD-based and supports the Broadcom
       BCM4401 100Base-T NIC adapters :pci14e4,170c Broadcom BCM4401  100Base-

       The  bfe	 driver supports IEEE 802.3 auto-negotiation, flow control and
       VLAN tagging.

       The default configuration is auto-negotiation with  bidirectional  flow
       control.	 The advertised capabilities for auto-negotiation are based on
       the capabilities of the PHY.

       You can set the capabilities advertised by the  bfe  controlled	device
       using dladm(1M).	 The driver supports only those parameters which begin
       with en (enabled) in the parameters listed by  the  command  dladm(1M).
       Each  of	 these	boolean parameters determines if the device advertises
       that mode of operation when the hardware supports it.
