    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:

    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

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