Apologies. We have a 3c590 Vortex card in our machine. We are using driver
V0.46C since this was rock solid for over 100 days of uptime under 2.0.32.
During these 100 days of uptime over 2,000,000,000 (2billion) packets were
handled without flaw. I am not doubting the network driver at this stage.

Didn't someone isolate a specific wait queue corruption present in 2.1.x
that is also present in 2.0.33?
