A while ago I mentioned that there was a problem with this at least with
8139too and Nikolaus Filus reported something similar (I see it when
switching to wired from wireless, having plugged the cable in when the
notebook is still asleep). Is is known for sure whether this is a NM bug
or definitely 8139too? If it's the latter, I'll get on to the Bugzilla.
