I looked back in the archives and found a workaround
here is the diff -u from Andreas Steinmetz (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Mar 04 1999) again.
It also works against the 1.07h source.

But on my specific system (Pentium 200 MMX) the modified driver works only
if I load the module with debug infos (insmod epic100 debug=6)
So I recompiled this module with only -O1 optimizations (instead of -O2) ...
my compile string:
/usr/src/linux/drivers/net # gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -O1 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -fno-strength-reduce
-m486 -malign-loops=2 -malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=586
-DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -include /usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h
-c -o epic100.o epic100.c
now it seems to work without debug infos.
perhaps someone deeper involved will find this information useful.
BTW my compiler was:
ws2:~ # gcc -v
