    SubjectRE: 8139too bug in 2.4.4 (2.4.3?) & VIA 686a

    I've compiled 2.4.3mdk-25 source with Athlon optimizations, and the
    problem still happens.

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:4294967221 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
    Interrupt:11 Base address:0x9000

    Look at the HWaddr. With default kernel (not compiled), I haven't this
    problem and my ethernet card goes well and the HWaddr is: ·"HWaddr
    00:E0:29:9A:CB:62 ". And I'm sure after reboot I *MUST* restore all the
    values of my BIOS setup. Believe me, I know. :(

    Here is the output of dmesg when loading the 81389too module:

    Assertion failed! ioaddr != NULL,8139too.c,rtl8139_init_one,line=927
    eth0: SMC1211TX EZCard 10/100 (RealTek RTL8139) at 0x9000,
    ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff, IRQ 11
    eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'
    eth0: Setting 100mbps half-duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability

    "Assertion failed! ioaddr != NULL,8139too.c,rtl8139_init_one,line=927"?
    What is this? Is this the cause of the bug?

    Now the lspci -vv:

    I hope these lines can help.
