[eepro100-bug] Card reports no RX buffer

I own a i810 with the eepro100 NIC. This eepro100 has the receiver lock-up bug,
but the driver tells, that he enables a workaround. Sometimes it works like 
expected but sometimes (more often, when the twisted pair cable is plugged in 
????? - but this could be wrong), it locks up while ifconfiguring. I tried with
another machine (same setup) with the dhclient, but when dhclient broadcasts
his requests, the message "eth0: card reports no RX buffers" appears and
the machine doesn't lock up.

I use the vanilla 2.2.16 kernel but the same behaviour is with the 2.2.14.

What's wrong? Is this a bug? Is there a modparm for this??

So long and thanks for answering
