On 2.6.19 the link status is working (follows cable plug/unplug), but no
tx or rx packets get thru. Attempts to transmit occasionally result in
tx timed out errors in dmesg, but I cannot seem to generate these at

On 2.6.20-rc5, the link status does not work (link is always down), and
as expected no tx or rx. No tx timed out errors this time, presumably
because it thinks the link is down. Note that both the switch and the
LEDs on the NIC indicate a good 1000 Mbps link.

dmesg, 'cat /proc/interrupts', and 'lspci -vvv' attached for 2.6.20-rc5.
The data from 2.6.19 is essentially the same.

I haven't been able to test rc5-mm yet because it won't boot on this
box. Applying git-e1000 directly to -rc4 or -rc5 results in a number of
rejects that I'm not sure how to fix. Some are obvious, but the others
I'm unsure of.
