Subject3c509 module and 2.6 kernel: not all NICs are recognized?
Finally, I tried to boot our gateway machine into 2.6 (
to be certain) kernel. The machine is quite old, it's 100MHz
Pentium-classic, yet it works as a router just fine.

And surprizingly, this is the first machine I tried to upgrade
to 2.6 which does not work.

It have 4 3c509 cards, one EISA and 3 ISA. Here's the dmesg
output when I load 3c509 module on 2.4 kernel:

eth0: 3c5x9 at 0x2000, 10baseT port, address 00 60 08 4b 31 bf, IRQ 15.
3c509.c:1.19 16Oct2002
eth1: 3c5x9 at 0x3000, 10baseT port, address 00 20 af 92 f6 ef, IRQ 7.
3c509.c:1.19 16Oct2002
eth2: 3c5x9 at 0x4000, 10baseT port, address 00 20 af 92 83 02, IRQ 5.
3c509.c:1.19 16Oct2002
eth3: 3c5x9 at 0x5000, BNC port, address 00 20 af 99 f2 ac, IRQ 12.
3c509.c:1.19 16Oct2002

(the last one, with IRQ#12 and BNC port, is EISA).

But when in 2.6, only this last EISA one is recognized by
3c509 module.

Any ideas?
