8139 on LinuxPPC

I tried to use a 8139 based board (FE 551 from Macsense) on a PowerMac
4400 running LinuxPPC with little success. It seems to do some
transmitting, but produces only errors (if at all) upon receiving packets.
Ping, for example, does not work at all, neither if I run it on the 4400
nor if I run it on another machine on the network.

Compiling the driver rtl8139.c gives some warning messages which I don't

Does anybody know a solution or a hint?
