The 'mii-tool' program is a simplified version of the full 'mii-diag'

Most of the 'mii-tool' code is taken from the my original 'mii-diag'
source code, but based on a subset of an old version.  Compare
with the original mii-diag.c from
and you'll see why I recommend using my software releases for full and
correct information.

[[ Yes, I also grumble about the compiled version removing my authorship
information, which is a minor license violation. ]] 

There are two feature added to 'mii-tool' not in the original 'mii-diag'
  - the option to log the status messages with syslog.
  - the ability to monitor ("--watch") more than one interface.
You can do the same thing with a three line shell script using 'mii-diag'.
