    Ok, I've been fiddling around with the driver tonight and have managed
    to get a little further by forcing the driver to do a full reset of the
    chip when the RX buffer over flows. I achieved this by sticking a return
    1; at the top of gem_rxmac_reset().

    I'm guessing this isn't an "optimal" reset for the situation but so far
    it's having /reasonable/ results (i.e. I don't have to bring the
    interface up and down every 30 seconds!).
    ...
    Hope this helps,

    I'll follow up on this and figure out why my RX reset code
    isn't working after I finish up some 2.5.x work.

    But looking quickly I think I see what is wrong. Please give
    this a try (and remember to remove your hacks before testing
    this :-):
