That seems to be the easier option:

AMD64 :gdb /usr/src/linux-2.6.23-rc4-mm1/vmlinux
GNU gdb 6.6-debian
(gdb) l *nv_napi_poll+0x108
0xffffffff80418f28 is in nv_napi_poll (drivers/net/forcedeth.c:2470).
2465 if ((flags & NV_RX2_CHECKSUMMASK) == NV_RX2_CHECKSUMOK2)/*ip and tcp */ {
2466 skb->ip_summed = CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY;
2467 } else {
2468 if ((flags & NV_RX2_CHECKSUMMASK) == NV_RX2_CHECKSUMOK1 ||
2470 skb->ip_summed = CHECKSUM_UNNECESSARY;
2471 }
2472 }
2474 /* got a valid packet - forward it to the network core */
(gdb) q

as for toolchain differences: this is Debian Unstable, up-to-date as of
yesterday morning.

If some fields are empty or look unusual you may have an old version.
Compare to the current minimal requirements in Documentation/Changes.

Good luck,
His pride could withstand anything. He simply wouldn't care.
