Eric,
If napi_complete_done() calls could affect drivers on older
hardware, I can test the following:

drivers/net/ethernet/3com/typhoon.c
drivers/net/ethernet/amd/pcnet32.c
drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/tg3.c
drivers/net/ethernet/dec/tulip/interrupt.c
drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e100.c
drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000/e1000_main.c
drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/epic100.c
drivers/net/ethernet/via/via-rhine.c

- Matthew
