    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:

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