    SubjectPROBLEM: e100 or e1000 on SMP kernel freeze system (ipx+ncp)
    Test on last driver e1000 5.2.52 (from intel.com)...
    And get same result....

    NAPI enable / disable not important...

    "ip link set eth0 down" may be replace Instead of "connect cable to NIC".
    And get same result... (w/o message "NIC Link is Up").
