Loading (then unloading) e100.ko fails the first few times (i.e. the
driver claims one of the EEPROMs is corrupted). Thereafter, sometimes it
fails, other times it works. Sounds like a race, no?

$ cat load_unload
: > /var/log/kern.log
insmod e100.ko debug=16
sleep 1
cp /var/log/kern.log insmod_$I.txt
ip link > ip_link_$I.txt
sleep 2
rmmod e100
let "I=I+1"

(cf. attached compressed archive)

FAILURE:
insmod_100.txt
insmod_101.txt
insmod_102.txt
insmod_105.txt
insmod_107.txt
insmod_108.txt
insmod_110.txt
insmod_111.txt
insmod_114.txt

SUCCESS:
insmod_103.txt
insmod_104.txt
insmod_106.txt
insmod_109.txt
insmod_112.txt
insmod_113.txt
insmod_115.txt
insmod_116.txt

On an unrelated note, insmod_100.txt is truncated at the beginning, and
insmod_110.txt is truncated in the middle (!!) cf. line 14. What would
cause klogd to behave like that?

Regards.
