SubjectRe: [PATCH] 2.4.15-pre4 - recovery after timeout (drivers/net/fealnx.c)
Thanks, patch applied.

Yes, the tx reset is gross, but recovery after timeout is important. It
is very complicated to test and reset each of the various NIC engines as
necessary in a proper tx_timeout routine, so most drivers go the lazy
way and simply reset the entire NIC.
