Nope - tx crash again. This time the system stayed up (but hosed) for a
few hours. When I tried to recover eth0 the system then crashed.

Brief summary of events (log extract below):

System start Jan 28 19:29
Everything seemed good (load and all) until 17:13:11 the following day
when I got rx errors:

The system continued running normally after this until this morning (Jan

Jan 30 05:45:01 mail kernel: sky2 eth0: disabling interface
Jan 30 05:45:01 mail kernel: sky2 eth0: enabling interface
This down/up continued for several hours until I intervened at about 10:05.

I saw that there was no eth0 connectivity, eth1 was ok. It appeard that
eth0 was receiving traffic but unable to send. arpwatch was reporting
bogons, DHCP showed many DISCOVER/OFFER pairs, no REQUEST/ACK. Pings to
any system failed; arp showed incomplete for anything hanging off of
eth0. arping also failed.
I manually stopped and started eth0 (ifconfig) and reset iptables
(although eth0 has no filters).

As I started looking at logs, the system hung and rebooted. I'm up now
with dma debug enabled, however as with 2.6.32.4 num_entries is dropping
and I don't think that dma debug will remain enabled long enough to
catch a crash.

So, as I see things, there are two issues here: 1) the TX hang post DMAR
error and 2) the inability to recover the interface and subsequent
system instability.
