I saw the same message.

The comment before wait_for_cmd_done() function in
linux/drivers/net/eepro100.c says:
/* How to wait for the command unit to accept a command.
Typically this takes 0 ticks. */

And the initial value for the bogus counter, named "wait", is 1000.
Is it enough for your machine?

I applied attached patch, eepro100.patch. After that, I've never seen
the message from wait_for_cmd_done(). And, my NIC works fine.

You may want to adjust the initial value for the bogus counter.
I don't know the appropriate value for this bogus counter.

I hope this helps you.
