Subjectproblem with adding starfire driver to kernel 2.2.18
I've seen this symptom in the past with updated tulip and eepro drivers.
Basically, it appears that it detects the same card more than once. In
the case of the below dmesg output - the machine has 1 tulip based card,
and 1 Adaptec Quartet64. The eth[5-8] are bogus.

In the past, if I remember correctly, so long as I didn't do anything to
the bogus interfaces, stuff was fine, but it's a little disturbing.

Note - I've added the module directly to the kernel (added the .o files
in the drivers/net/Makefile, and the pci_scan/kern_compat stuff etc.)

Any ideas on how I can correct this symptom?

Moving to 2.4.1 isn't an option just yet, although I am considering it
as I'm deploying new machines.
