    You ignore the fact these two NICs work as expected on 2.6.15
    and on 2.4.32 when e100 driver is compiled in, for the same
    hardware and test.

    What further testing would you like? Also, you ignore the all
    zeroes ifconfig accounting for the second NIC, and that the
    accounting was also accumulated to the first e100 along with

    Anyway the solution is simple: modular e100 is borked on 2.4,
    compiled in is okay.
