    Subject2.4.3-pre8 problem with 8139too - failure to load
    Something has changed regarding the 8139too driver in pre8.

    I worked on it all morning long trying to resolve why the sucker
    failed to load. There are new configuration options that need to
    be addressed. As you recall there were zippo options in the pre7.

    There are now:

    RealTek RTL-8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter support [M]
    Use PIO instead of MMIO
    Support for automatic channel equalization (EXPERIMENTAL) [ ]
    Support for older RTL-8129/8130 boards [*]

    Doing any combination of the above netted no positive result here.

    I have run every kernel patch since 2.4.0 blah and
    have never seen this driver fail to load or perform to some degree.

    Trying to do insmod 8139too.o from the :
    /lib/modules/2.4.3-pre8/kernel/drivers/net directory show these
    unresolved symbols:

    8139too.o: unresolved symbol alloc_etherdev
    8139too.o: unresolved symbol unregister_netdev
    8139too.o: unresolved symbol register_netdev

    Maybe Jeff can shed more light on these changes....
