783 means:
Tx Underrun
Tx Idle
Tx Packet Error
Tx Descriptor
Rx Packet Error
Rx Descriptor
Rx OK.

Hmm. I download the Documentation from National
(http://www.national.com/pf/DP/DP83815.html),
and the the tx burst size/fill threshold/drain threshold combination is
invalid:

<<<<<<<< from natsemi.c:
/* Configure the PCI bus bursts and FIFO thresholds. */
/* Configure for standard, in-spec Ethernet. */
np->tx_config = (1<<28) + /* Automatic transmit padding */
(1<<23) + /* Excessive collision retry */
(0x0<<20) + /* Max DMA burst = 512 byte */
(8<<8) + /* fill threshold = 256 byte */
2; /* drain threshold = 64 byte */
writel(np->tx_config, ioaddr + TxConfig);
>>>>>>>>>>>>

But:
<<<<<<<< page 51
The MXDMA MUST NOT be greater than the Tx Fill Threshold

Could you try this setup?
<<<<<<<<
/* Configure the PCI bus bursts and FIFO thresholds. */
/* Configure for standard, in-spec Ethernet. */
np->tx_config = (1<<28) + /* Automatic transmit padding */
(1<<23) + /* Excessive collision retry */
(6<<20) + /* Max DMA burst = 128 byte */
(8<<8) + /* fill threshold = 256 byte */
8; /* drain threshold = 256 byte */
writel(np->tx_config, ioaddr + TxConfig);
