    It is. As I already mentioned in other messages, I already tested with JUST the
    patched 8390.c driver, no other patches. It was stable. I then patched apic.c
    AND io_apic.c, which did not introduce new instabilities. Unless you think that
    reverting back to a stock io_apic.c would cause instabilities (which would be
    weird, since I had no instabilities running only a patched 8390.c), I think the
    patch to 8390.c DOES remove the symptoms all by itself. No other patches seem
    necessary to get a stable box.

    But I'll patch the mess again just fox kicks :-)
