Not so for me: I've been running with a 3C905 and an AHA-2940UW for many month
now, going SMP three months ago, with no lockup whatsover. I'm at 2.0.34pre5
now, was at 2.0.34pre2 before that, and 2.0.33 even before. I'm using the
5.0.x aic7xxx driver, as well as the 0.49 version of the 3Com driver.
