Re: 3com 905 driver still missing from 2.0.31 prepatch

We just got a brand new machine with a 3c905... I get the following with
the default RedHat 4.2 driver:
3c900.c:v0.40 4/16/97
loading device 'eth0'...
eth0: 3Com 3c905 Boomerang 100baseTx at 0xee80, 00:60:08:07:25:7f, IRQ 10
8K word-wide RAM 3:5 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/MII interface.
Rx Pacing bug exists, disabling bus-master receives.
eth0: Overriding PCI latency timer (CFLT) setting of 64, new value is 248.

Is this an old revision of the card? I haven't done any heavy networking
on it yet but it seems to be stable so far.
