SubjectCRAP in 2.4.18-pre7
I would like to notice that the changes in 2.4.18-pre7 to the
tulip eth driver are apparently causing absymal performance drops
on my version of this card. Apparently the performance is dropping
from the expected 10MB/s to about 10kB/s. The only special
thing about the configuration in question is the fact that it's
a direct connection between two hosts. Well, more precisely it's
a cross-over link between my notebook and desktop.

Here is an excerpt from the lspci command:

00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Digital Equipment Corporation DECchip 21041
[Tulip Pass 3] (rev 11)
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop-
ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B-
Status: Cap- 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort-
<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 64
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 11
Region 0: I/O ports at d400 [size=128]
Region 1: Memory at cfffdf80 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128]
Expansion ROM at cff80000 [disabled] [size=256K]

The motherboard is a SiS735 chip. The card is apparently sharing it's
(which I guess could be a cause of the problem) with nearly anything else
on the system:

0: 654927 XT-PIC timer
1: 25591 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 107 XT-PIC bttv
8: 283913 XT-PIC rtc
11: 70064 XT-PIC usb-ohci, usb-ohci, eth0, SiS 7012
12: 39738 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 198652 XT-PIC ide0
15: 0 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
ERR: 0
[root@domek athlon]#

Oh well yes I have added the newest version of the i810_audio.c for
support of the on board sound card - it's working *GREATLY*.

Please revert the changes in question from the pre-patch.
