I have similar problems, though I don't have any carrier problems:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:C9:66:12:9B
inet addr:xx.xx.xx.xx Bcast:xx.xx.xx.xx Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:214835 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:33050 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
Interrupt:9 Base address:0xe0e0

Seems to just drop out when there hasn't been any activity for
a while for me though. Give it about 10-15 seconds and it comes back.

I didn't run this machine very long w/ 2.2.16 so I don't really
know if previous versions had the same problem. If I have some time,
perhaps over the weekend, I'll try and find out.
