    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Do not register ne2k-pci device until initialized

    > Good spotting, that fixes a clear startup race

    I saw this and thought that this must be one of those non-singular bugs
    again... ;)

    (I checked for dev_addr manipulations _after_ register_netdev)

    And, well...:

    smsc911x.c looks like it has the same issue (in case of a non-specified
    MAC address - invalid EEPROM content).

    Dito ucc_geth.c

    Dito arm/ixp4xx_eth.c

    Dito wireless/netwave_cs.c

    Given that several drivers seem to violate this rule: is there a way
    to add a check against this problem?
