Description of problem:
ifconfig will show interrupt and base address of interfaces
using ioctl SIOCGIFMAP (the line is "ioctl(skfd, SIOCGIFMAP, &ifr)").
When I load appletalk.o (insmod appletalk), the ioctl will fail and
can't show the interrupt and base address. And after unload the
appletalk.o, the ioctl returns to normal. Is there any way to fix
the ioctl when I load appletalk.o?
I have tried to use lan card rth8139, e100, eepro100 to test.
And ioctl failed every time when I load appletalk.o.

Actual Results: After insmod appletalk.o the line "interrupt: xx Base address:
0xXXXX ..." disappear.
Expected Results: ifconfig should show "interrupt: xx Base address:
0xXXXX ..." of
Very strange, but reproduced here! Will look into it. Although it's more likely
to be a kernel bug. :-)
Read ya, Phil
I didn't manage to reproduce this bug with net-tools-1.60-39 and 2.6.9
kernel. Closing this bug as CURRENTRELEASE.
