Subjectweird bug on r8169 with usb
Date
Hi (Please excuse my bad english),

I think is there a bug on my linux box :
I hope you can say me that it is really a bug, or if i have to consider myself as bug :)

If i boot my system/kernel with usb devices plugged, eth0 is detected but unusable.
I unplug the usb devices, kernel boot, and eth0 is usable.
The bug is reproducible as much as necessary.

More informations :
(if you need more informations, ask, i will reply)

When i say that eth0 is unusable, i can see there no dhcp request can make a success.

I've seen the bug with :
linux-2.6.24-gentoo-r8
linux-2.6.25-gentoo-r5

I can test with a vanilla kernel (without the gentoo patches) but i "think" is there no link with the gentoo patches.
(Ask if necessary)
