    Subject2.6.0-test[56] pcnet32 problems
    Got an cyrix box with built in ethernet & 2 extra ethernet cards
    as a firewall at home with a dsl line (connected to eth0)

    pcnet32.c:v1.27b 01.10.2002
    PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 0000:00:0f.0
    IRQ routing conflict for 0000:00:0f.0, have irq 9, want irq 11
    pcnet32: PCnet/FAST III 79C973 at 0xfca0, warning: CSR address invalid,
    using instead PROM address of 00 00 e2 24 41 1d assigned IRQ 9.
    eth0: registered as PCnet/FAST III 79C973
    pcnet32: 1 cards_found.

    Sometimes (even during low traffic) eth0 simply locks up:
    In dmesg i see:
    kernel: eth0: Bus master arbitration failure, status 88f3.

    rmmod pcnet32 results in kernel-panic.
    Only reboot works.
    acpi == disabled

    Another weird thing is output of ifconfig eth0:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:E2:24:41:1D
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:30345 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:16042 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:16042
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:38404293 (36.6 MiB) TX bytes:1298028 (1.2 MiB)
    Interrupt:9 Base address:0xfca0

    0 packets transmitted , all errors ans carrier faults ?
    Still it works! (this could be counters that are wrong)

    kernel config, lspci -v and dmesg output available at:

    Any help/suggestions/hints appreciated.
