suppress eth0 PHY reset messages in syslog??

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm getting 10000000's of syslog messages : "eth0: PHY reset until link up" - I have wireless and don't normally use an ethernet cable. From Googling round I found this bug report https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/270184 which appears to match the problem, however I do not feel happy/competent enough to recompile the driver as suggested in the bug fix. Is there a way to configure the driver so that it only tries the eth0 connection a limited number of times? This is Ubuntu 8.04 2.4.26-27 and SIS 191 chipset (HowTos)
