I have been seeing some errors that could be autonegotiation failing, they
haven't been enough for me to ge the time to track them down (and I was
putting them down to cisco switch config issues anyway) I'll have to
double check.

correction on version numbers.

2.4.5-pre1 worked, 2.4.5 has driver 0.9-15-pre2 and fails, I guess I
hadn't tested properly with 2.4.8, compiling now with drivers/net from
2.4.4.

when it locks up the reset works immediatly, power takes a few seconds to
shutdown.
