This state seems the hardware problem. Probably TX pending was not
processed, so any pending interrupts is nothing.

What CardBus bridge are you using? If TI12xx bridge, can you try the
attached patch? (Try "disable_clkrun" module option with yenta_socket.ko)

[PATCH] pcmcia: Add disable_clkrun option

I received report that transmission of Realtek 8139 doesn't work. The
cause of this problem was CLKRUN protocols of laptop's TI 12xx CardBus
bridge.

And I remember that this problem had happened on Thinkpad before. In
the case, problem seems solved by similar workaround of sound/oss/cs46xx.c.

This patch adds "disable_clkrun" option as workaround of problem to
yenta_socket.

Please apply.
