Ok. With the latest version you sent I got it compiled and working. As far as I
can tell from short tests it looks good (eth2 is tg3):

CPU0
0: 79344 XT-PIC timer
1: 2428 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 0 XT-PIC EMU10K1
7: 81 XT-PIC HiSax
9: 387286 XT-PIC aic7xxx, aic7xxx, eth0, eth1, eth2
11: 75780 XT-PIC ide2, ide3
12: 17740 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
15: 2 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
LOC: 0
ERR: 0
MIS: 0

To make sure I will let it stress-test overnight and send you the results in
about 15 hours from now on. If everything does fine I will redo with ide2,ide3
on same interrupt, too. Just to see what happens with these Promise things...

Thanks a lot, I'll be back,
