    Yeah, it looks like the real 2.1.120 uses the same 3c59x.c (v0.99F) that
    were introduced in 120-pre1, ugh.

    A bit surprising given that multiple people have reported total
    disfunction with this version, both from the 120-pre series (on
    linux-kernel) and the test/development 3c59x.c file available from Donald
    Becker's Vortex/Boomerang/Cyclone page (multiple report on the vortex-bug
    mailing list).

    Donald Becker's page has the 0.99E driver as the "official" version, with
    0.99F available as test/development version.


    Could someone please revert the 3c59x.c driver back to 0.99E in Linux
    2.1.x until a better version than 0.99F is available.

    (Currently running 2.1.120-pre1 with 3c59x.c 0.99E, yes I'm one of the
    afflicted persons that have reported it)
