    tg3.c:v3.49 (Feb 2, 2006)
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:01.0[A] -> GSI 24 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
    eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95704s) rev 2100 PHY(serdes)] (PCIX:100MHz:64-bit) 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet 00:14:5e:86:44:24

    02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704S Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
    Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 0301
    Flags: bus master, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 17

    Capabilities: [50] Vital Product Data
    Capabilities: [58] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/3 Enable-

    The other interesting bit of information is that after networking card
    goes dead and I do the "ifdown eth0; ifup eth0", the following printk
    shows up:

    tg3: tg3_abort_hw timed out for eth0, TX_MODE_ENABLE will not clear MAC_TX_MODE=ffffffff

    This is from an IBM LS-20 blade.

    Is this helpful?
