Subject[BUG somewhere] 2.6.0-test8 irq.c, IRQ_INPROGRESS ?

I'm seeing an NMI Watchdog detected LOCKUP go away when I revert this patch
previously added into test8.

Any help appreciated.

EIP is at .text.lock.8390+0x39/0x63 which is in ei_start_xmit() in 8390.c
at the first spin_lock_irqsave().

I hand copied the data from the console, what else is interesting/necessary?

First notices after booting into test8 and the system went silent when starting X,
since /home is NFS mounted go generate network and IDE activity.

Reproducible by doing all 3 of these (any 2 and the system stays alive, longer
than I want to wait)

1. ping flood A->B
2. ping flood B->A
3. find and grep for garbage from IDE on B's /dev/md/X filesystem

System B is SMP dual Celeron 466Mhz.
