Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80942
orinoco_pci death with Intersil/PrismII firmware on Thinkpad T30

orinoco_pci tends to drop out a lot with 'Error -110: Tx error writing to BAP'
(well, something like that -- I left the laptop at home) under heavy network
load. Taking down the interface, removing the module and reinserting it to
reinitialize seems to work to bring it back, although somewhat painful.
The newer 0.13a driver available from
http://www.ozlabs.org/people/dgibson/dldwd/ seems to fix the problems for me.
Already in 2.5.x and the author said he's planning to send to Marcelo/Alan for
2.4.x once he gets back from vacation
fixed in rawhide kernel
Reopening bug report... the error still occurs on my IBM Thinkpad T30 under
Phoebe 8.0.94 (kernel-2.4.20-2.48).

Is this still a problem in the latest errata kernel ?
It's not with rawhide at least.
