    A datapoint that might be interesting:

    I run four of these buggers with eepros as Internet-Interfaces for
    heavy traffic (30-80 MBit sustained 24/7) under 2.2.19. Not a single
    glitch on each of these boxes. The machines have two PIII/1GHz each
    and a (custom built) SMP kernel based off RH 2.2.19-6.2.7

    eepro100.c: VA Linux custom, Dragan Stancevic <> 2000/11/15
    eth0: Intel PCI EtherExpress Pro100 82557, 00:D0:B7:A8:67:EC, I/O at 0x2c00, IRQ 21.
    Board assembly 000000-000, Physical connectors present: RJ45
    Primary interface chip i82555 PHY #1.
    General self-test: passed.
    Serial sub-system self-test: passed.
    Internal registers self-test: passed.
    ROM checksum self-test: passed (0x04f4518b).

    So there may be a change between 2.2 and 2.4 that triggers the problems.
