I installed RedHat7.0 on a Dual PIII-933 with Intel Pro100/S
(Intel 82557) Network Adapter. After that, everything worked fine.

Then, I updated to glibc 2.2-12,  nothing else was changed.
Now I have a 95% Chance on boot time, that eth0 don't come up.
It says:
	"eth0: card reports no RX buffers.
	 eth0: card reports no resources." (repeating on and on)

Bad thing is that I have to install about 200 new Computers of that
exact config in the next 30 days :-(  and I don't want to miss the
lots of security and bug fixes in 2.2-12.

I don't see how change of glibc might matter to a kernel module (unless
you get out of memory or unless glibc would have major bugs and would
cause insmod to overwrite parts of the eepro100 module.
Can you try to downgrade glibc temporarily to some other rpm (or upgrade
to glibc-2.2.1-2 in rawhide)? Can you try using /sbin/insmod.static to load
the driver into the kernel?
