Subject[PATCH 36/61] sky2: 88E803X transmit lockup (2.6.18)
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@osdl.org>

The reason sky2 driver was locking up on transmit on the Yukon-FE chipset
is that it was misconfiguring the internal RAM buffer so the transmitter
and receiver were sharing the same space. It is a wonder it worked at all!

This patch addresses this, and fixes an easily reproducible hang on Transmit.
Only the Yukon-FE chip is Marvell 88E803X (10/100 only) are affected.
