For some reason the drivers from Becker's collection
have recently been quite certain to zap into "re-entering
interrupt handler" behaviour. This one is no exception :-(

Some change in kernel around 2.1.110 (+- a few) has caused this
behaviour, but what ??

I have three network interfaces; on-board DC21143, 3c900, and
3c905 cards.

I have an Alpha system where all different interrupt sources
have separate IRQs (my highest in-use IRQ number is 44), so
there is no IRQ-share problems, or such.
