SubjectPATCH: ICL EtherTeam 16i fix
Hello!

I had problems with an ICL EtherTeam 16i when booting via a
TCP/IP-bootprom. The card was not detected in 4 of 5 boots. I found that
it was due to a too restrictive signature check. The patch below lets it
boot fine now for 30+ reboots, so I guess it works.

I contacted the author, but he didn't reply yet and Linus wants to finish
2.0.31, so have a look at it.

If you still have problems reading this signature,
get Linux and a REAL cpu!
