Many of you describe a problem where a transmit command for the i8255x times 
out.  Drivers provide a function to handle such condition usually by issuint 
a PORT_RESET command to the chip and reinitializing/restarting everything.  
I issue a PORT_SELECTIVE_RESET and it works too.

Here is my question:  how often do you notice this problem occuring?  For 
me, when network load is heavy, the tx timeout occurs once every few 
seconds.  Also, is there an errata from Intel on why it is happening and 
what to do about it?
