hmm, in linux-3.2 (and older), linux/mii.h doesn't include anything else.  
seems linux-3.3-rc1 has started including linux/ethtool.h too.  however, that 
is unnecessary for userspace, so i'll probably send a patch to move the 
include to __KERNEL__.

dv-eth_phy.c has some hacks in it to make it build with even older kernel 
headers.  maybe i should have it just not build that driver on older systems 
rather than try to support it ...
