Linus,

I've got an oops in the forcedeth driver on shutdown. Sorry for the crappy
camera phone pictures, this board doesn't have RS232 ports:

http://devzero.co.uk/~alistair/oops-20060512/

It was initially difficult to reproduce, but I found I could do so reliably if
I ssh'ed into the box and halted it remotely, then it would always oops on
shutdown. I assume this is because the driver is still active when something
happens to it during halt.

There's been just a single commit since -rc3:

forcedeth: fix multi irq issues
ebf34c9b6fcd22338ef764b039b3ac55ed0e297b

However, it could have just been hidden since before -rc3, so I'll try to work
backwards if nobody has any immediate ideas..
