    On UP boxes, it happily runs bottom half handlers while in an interrupt,
    which has caused the "eth0: Tx request while ISR is active" messages.
    The following two line patch fixes that problem. Looks like a simple
    thinko-typo. You can decide if the atomic ops are really required or
    just overkill :)
