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
interrupts.

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