Description of problem:
On a Thinkpad 600X using a 3com PCMCIA network card:
Networking works for a short time after being started via ifup
(usually about 60-90 seconds) after which point it fails, with the
dmesg output "eth0: interrupt(s) dropped!"
Normally I would suspect hardware failure but networking was working
perfectly fine on this machine with its old operating system, with the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'ifup eth0'
2. wait 60-90 seconds
3. attempt to ping/nslookup/ssh/etc. another machine
