Hmm, this would not, by chance, be on a box with a 2.4.x kernel? I had
the same issue just last night when upgrading to 2.4.6 from 2.2.19. My
solution, originally, was to grab the 'test' versions of both tulip.c
and kern_compat.h (not sure if a more recent kern_compat.h was required)
from ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/test/. tulip.c then compiled
fine. I used it for a little bit before noticing a slew of syslog
Jul 10 16:48:16 foo kernel: Warning: kfree_skb on hard IRQ d88818c4
The messages would repeat over and over, seemingly for every 10th packet
that was sent over the wire. Then again I use a LinkSys LNE100 (version
4), not a Kingston.
I wound up using the kernel-supplied tulip driver in the end.
