Is anyone looking into the broken 3c590 ethernet card driver? It seems
people on v0.25 and the alleged latest v0.28c-all, get random hangs after
various periods of time.

I'm also getting "eth0: transmitter access conflict" a fair bit.
Performance when transmitting also seems poor.

I've seen other reports to this effect. Is this driver broken for
everyone? Just people with the newer 8k boards? Or what?

And I assume 3com are not helpful with Linux drivers. Another company we
should all blacklist if that is the case...
