The bnx2 driver has stopped working on 2.6.27-rc5-mm1.

Plain 2.6.27-rc5 works. Reversing the bnx2 changes in -mm1 does not
fix the issue, so something less obvious is going on.

# ifup eth0
Determining IP information for eth0...SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument
# ifconfig eth0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument

Bringing up the interface fails with -EINVAL. Specifically, the
SIOCSIFFLAGS ioctl is returning -EINVAL:

ioctl(4, SIOCSIFFLAGS, 0x7fffc841cc40) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)

I am running an x86-64 kernel on a Dell pe1950 with these network chips
on the mainboard:

05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 12)
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme II BCM5708 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 12)
