Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75481
(NET TULIP) Lite on network driver is unreliable
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:07:31 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

Created attachment 79645 [details]
[PATCH] this is potentially a fix for this problem... need to review more and verify
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
Seems happy now
