SubjectRe: [PATCH] drivers/net/tulip/: fix for Lite-On 82c168 PNIC (2.6.11)
Hi there, Guido,

Jeff resurrected this patch from the misty depths of the past. I
double-checked the docs and the first bug fix is definitely correct.
The second part isn't in the docs, but seems reasonable. Is this
still the patch you are using? Any comments you want to add?
