Which bug is this?  I'm using RedHat's distributed 2.2.15 (and I know
RedHat patches their kernels all the time so maybe it has the bug
fixed).  But I am not having any problems with the driver, certainly not
compared to the 2.0.36 I was using previously which had transmit timeouts
all the time requiring me to unload and reload the module every few
minutes :}
