SubjectRe: OOPS in read_cd... what to do?

While talking about old (probably unmaintaned) hardware and oops..

Any kernel I've tried oops when I try to use the e2100 driver to get my
Cabletron E2100 isa network-card running.

Btw. I don't expect anyone to care, but I'd be very happy if anyone could
give me any comment/hint... I haven't done much debugging before and I'm
not very familiar with kernel/driver development. (So if anyone wondered
why I'm even looking at this, it's not because I can't live without my
Cabletron. It's more like this might be my chance to get more familiar. ;-])

How to reproduce:
1. load module.
#modprobe e2100
e2100.c: Presently autoprobing (not recommended) for a single card.
e2100.c:v1.01 7/21/94 Donald Becker (
00 00 1D 0A 72 AB, IRQ 15, secandary media, memory @ 0xd0000
(I can supply io=0x380 to get rid of the warning message, but there will
be no real difference. I'm not really sure this is the correct value,
but last time I tried this I did look at the jumpers and used the right
value, thats when I noticed the oops. A weird thing btw. It didn't
happen when there also was a ne2000-compatible isa-card used at the same
time, then it just refused to send any traffic.)

2. configure and up the interface, then send traffic using the
(ping some.remote.ip ... pinging myself works fine, but I guess it's
because the driver isn't involved there)

Did I forget to append something? (Hope not)

Thanks for all your great work by the way!
