Description Alan Cox 2002-10-08 19:01:20 EDT
With the 8.0 kernel I am getting failures with lite-on ethernet cards. It seems 
I can trigger it reliably in an environment where the card transmits and is hit
almost instantly by a series of frames back to back, and probably close to back
to back after the transmit

Have also seen this bug.

text console reports:
Spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7   then ide system hangs with hda: lost interrupt
reported every second or two. console is still responsive until disk access from 
the console occurs.

has twice just reported "Unknown interrupt" and hung.

how I repeat it:
ssh to the box, login usually works, then hold down Enter, usually takes from 3
to 10 or so.

occurs over 10mbit hub, crossover cable, and 100mb switch. 

Box is stock 8.0, no updates (yet).

Card is labeled FA-310, with a NetGear on the back, but reports as Lite-on?
Is definitely a tulip card.

That looks unrelated actually

Can you file a seperate bug about this and include info on your hardware then
let me know and I'll take  a look
