SubjectRE: 8139too bug in 2.4.4 (2.4.3?) & VIA 686a

I've compiled 2.4.3mdk-25 source with Athlon optimizations, and the
problem still happens.

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:4294967221 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x9000

Look at the HWaddr. With default kernel (not compiled), I haven't this
problem and my ethernet card goes well and the HWaddr is: ·"HWaddr
00:E0:29:9A:CB:62 ". And I'm sure after reboot I *MUST* restore all the
values of my BIOS setup. Believe me, I know. :(

Here is the output of dmesg when loading the 81389too module:

Assertion failed! ioaddr != NULL,8139too.c,rtl8139_init_one,line=927
eth0: SMC1211TX EZCard 10/100 (RealTek RTL8139) at 0x9000,
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff, IRQ 11
eth0: Identified 8139 chip type 'RTL-8139C'
eth0: Setting 100mbps half-duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability

"Assertion failed! ioaddr != NULL,8139too.c,rtl8139_init_one,line=927"?
What is this? Is this the cause of the bug?

Now the lspci -vv:
