2.0.34-pre11b; 3c59x driver broken?

Almost a week of uptime and I was at the console when suddenly I got lots

eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 00, status e000

And transmits were indeed dead. Who knows maybe the card would have
recovered but as I was at the console I ifconfig'ed the card down and up,
which restored networking properly.

The card is a 3c590 8k Vortex (with bug). It was solid with v0.46C
and possibly v0.44 driver too I think. Perhaps putting v0.99 driver in
2.0.34 isn't a brilliant idea? I think someone else complained?

As my driver is modular I will probably downgrade tomorrow :)
