Hello everyone,

I have the following problem:
In a cluster of Tyan S2468. This MB has 2 3COM 3c980-TX 10/100baseTX NIC 
[Python-T] (rev 78)
Using RH 7.3 driver 3c59x  version LK1.1.16
Under heavy load the driver generates lots of RX overrun error.
I have increased max_interrupt_work to 128 as suggested in a mailing 
list and recompiled the driver.
It decreases the number of RX overrun error but doesn't completely fixed 
the problem.
Is there a way to fix this problem?
