Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-03-17 20:49:51 EST
Description of Problem:

'pcitable' for kudzu and on a ram disk say:

0x1011	0x0019	"tulip"	"DEC|DECchip 21142/43"

I happen to have a chip with this PCI id in my test machine and current
tulip drivers _do not work_ with it (as reported already a number of times).
Actually it is even worse.  A module will load and an interface will start
but not a single packet will go through in either direction.  If this
interface will be configured for DHCP then on a startup it will wait
patiently for a response which will never come.

There were times when 'tulip', before it got "improved", worked fine with
this card but not for quite a while.  Current 'de4x5' driver does work
in that sense that an interface not only goes up but one can even send
some traffic through it.
