Description of problem:
RHEL5.2 beta integrated igb driver with version 1.0.8-k2. This driver will make
system crash when it was loaded. In Caneland and Stoakley, which have Intel
82575EB Gigabit Network controller, reboot machine after installation, the
system crash when load igb.ko driver. If disable the driver's loading, system
will work fine.
Downloaded the latest igb driver from sf with version 1.2.22, this driver works
well in 5.2 beta.
(I'm not sure the component to file the bug, I didn't
find 'network', 'NIC', 'network driver'..., so I just file it to 'net-tools'
component, please forword to right persons. thanks)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always with Intel 82575EB Gigabit Network controller.
Steps to Reproduce:

integrated workable igb driver.
This should be fixed in the next Snapshot (which should be released quite soon).
