[yellowfin-bug] <4>eth1: Too much work at interrupt, status=0x30000.

I am running Linux kernel 2.4.9-12 on a dual PIII system,
Intel STL2 motherboard.

I have two ethernet interfaces in the system, eth0 and eth1,
eth0 is a eepro100, eth1 is a hamachi from packet devices.

I had the error message happening before but I upgraded the
kernel to 2.4.9-12 and it is continuing, worse than before.

The version of the hamachi.c driver is

#define DRV_NAME        "hamachi"
#define DRV_VERSION     "1.01+LK1.0.1"
#define DRV_RELDATE     "5/18/2001"

Now the error is so frequent that the system doesn't seem to be
able to boot all the way.

How do we beat this problem?  Is a newer version of the driver available?
