I think the patch below should be applied before 2.6.9. It fixes the
bug that made the card DMA lots of data to random memory locations,
causing lockups and instant reboots.

The problem was that the yoffset variable got modified inside the
loop, but the logic in the switch statement was meant to work on the
initial value of the yoffset variable.

(Bug fix extracted from
