Sorry for the alarm... the lock-ups occurred with tulip-0.91g not with
eepro100... the locking/panicing machines were nodes in a cluster with
serial console, and I did'nt look there. They locked up because the
load reached max_interrupt work and this caused a problem with
INTR_MITIGATION on the 21143. The machines didn't respond to the
console or the net anymore. Vojtech extracted the fix for this from
the tulip-0.91s added it to the 0.91g.

Which card type and kernel, do you have messages from the panic?
Were the panics in connection with high network load?
