I'll check. My system only has 80MB RAM, and I run Mozilla, which
pushes a lot of information into the swap space. When I encounter
this "Host error" problem, tons of messages start spewing into my
logs. This bogs my entire system down horribly.

<great educational material snipped>

I have reproduced this problem with all the drivers built
into the kernel.

I have also just tried a test pass with 3c59x built in and
USB built as modules. I booted with only the 3c575 inserted.
I got eth0 running and then loaded usb-ohci (with the enable
bus mastering change added). This resulted in modprobe hanging

Now I'll try with all modules again and check to see whether eth0
is still usable.
