    I'm no good at hardware, but I guess this log could be not enough.
    So, if nobody will find something more sensible, maybe you can try
    some of these suggestions:

    - you've written it was OK with 2.6.20; it would be interesting
    to check if there were any changes in config (beside new options)
    or even retry 2.6.20 with "current" config after make oldconfig;
    - during such problems it's better to try to turn off as much
    unnecessary options/drivers as possible to find if it's really
    about network driver; e.g.: no SMP, tv cards, acpi - only
    basic, without options etc.;
    - if possible try it with newer kernel e.g. 2.6.22-rc5;
    - if possible try it with another, fresh distro (e.g. some live
    CD/DVD/USB bootable);
    - there was a lockdep warning from tvtime/bttv;
    - try to get some more debugging (help: modinfo ne2k-pci).
