    That is still pretty awful ... but it doesn't stop working?
    (you say hangs, but then resets)

    Ok, that means the "D-Link magic" does improve reset.

    It may be interesting to find out which parts that help. I simply added
    things that looked good ... Lacking information on what the bit-flipping
    is supposed to do, one way to try and do that is to remove code and see
    how much can be removed without breaking anything.
    (Sounds like a childrens game, except for programmers ...)

    I'll still try generating collisions and see what happens. If I can't
    reproduce this perhaps you would test a different patch to see which
    change that made a difference?
