"Ethernet Tranceiver Out of Production?" Broadcom ethernet BCM5201 VS BCM5221



> It seems like  the BCM5201 ethernet transceiver is being taken out of
> production, the obvious replacement ought to be the Broadcom
> pin-compatible BCM5221. 
> 
> 1. Have you encountered the same problem or is this a rumour?
> 2. Are there any known compability problems with drivers etc. After a
> brief check it seems like little or nothing needs to be done with the
> current ethernet drivers. There are some differencies among the
> registers between the two tranceivers, but nothing that seems to
> affect the current drivers in any serious way.
> 3. Will you replace the BCM5201, in the long/short run, and if then
> with what?
