DCx cards will probably always have problems with auto-detection of
media. It was broken from day one and it doesn't look like the vendor
ever fixed it. I would stay away from that chipset.

Well, I have a dc driver update target on my ToDo list. If I get some time this week, I will bring in the various driver fixes that were made in RELENG_4 and CURRENT into DragonFly.
