Bonding and acenic drivers

Hi all,

Does anybody know if I can use two 3Com 3C985B Gigabit ethernet cards
(acenic driver) with the Linux bonding driver ???
The bonding driver doesn't switch when one link goes down !
The mii-diag tool from Donald Becker reports an 'operation not supported'.
Does it mean that there's no
MII on these boards ? Is there another way to notify the bonding driver that
the link is down ?

Thanks a lot.
