If it matters, I run CSLIP too off a 57.6 Kbps ll-link and get those too.

My findings with 2.1 kernels are that the errors are somewhat random
(not related to load on the link, etc.) so I just put them down to
"noise" on the 4-wire cable. /var/adm/messages show something like 10-20
messages/day for 2.1.90

Interesting thing is all the error's have come from ssh-connections,
none of them have come from, let's say playing q2. Must be a TCP vs. UDP
issue?
