SubjectRe: UPDATE: 2.4.22-pre9, 8139too driver: eth0: Too much work at interrupt

turns out the problem was my fault. I had been tweaking the
pci latency_timer setting for the sound card using "setpci",
I had set it too high and the sound card was hogging the bus,
so to speak.

Hope this is helpful for others who might be experiencing this.

Anyway, may I just say that 2.4.22-pre9+ is turning out to be one of
the best kernels yet for me.
