panic: skput:over

Recently,  I've had a few panics on four dual P-II systems, 400MHz, Tyan
Tiger 100, SMC EtherPower II, 1.03 epic100 driver, 2.0.35 kernel.
Specifically,  all four of the machines would panic simultaneously with
"skput:over someaddr:somelen", where someaddr:somelen was 2080f1c4:6232
for one of the panics.  The fact that they did it simultaneously, leads me
to believe that something on the net (e.g., a giant packet) hit the
machines and caused the panic.

The systems are currently connected to a Xylan 10/100 switch, but also
had a panic when previously connected to a 3Com Fast Ethernet hub.

Has anyone else seen this?  I've downloaded the 1.04 driver, but it
appears that the code is pretty much the same around the skb_put() calls,
so I'm not sure if this will solve my problem.

Thanks for any pointers.
