    SubjectProblem with SMC Etherpower II + kernel newer 2.4.2
    Hi everybody,

    currently I experience some strange problems with every kernels newer
    than 2.4.2 and my SMC Etherpower II network card. While running such a
    kernel, the network hangs and I get lots of errors like these listed
    below:

    Jul 2 13:06:59 localhost kernel: eth0: Too much work at interrupt,
    IntrStatus=0x008d0004.
    Jul 2 13:07:06 localhost last message repeated 5 times
    Jul 2 13:07:20 localhost kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed
    out
    Jul 2 13:07:20 localhost kernel: eth0: Transmit timeout using MII
    device, Tx status 4003.
    Jul 2 13:07:22 localhost kernel: eth0: Too much work at interrupt,
    IntrStatus=0x008d0004.


    The /proc/pci lists the following system components:

    Does anybody else got these errors or knows about a solution for this ??
    The 2.2.x kernels and all kernel versions below (including) 2.4.2 work
    fine on the same system and I did not find any entries in the changelogs
    for the SMC driver code.

    Thx
