This occurs with regularity with recent kernels including


all for i686.  This bug makes working very painful as I have to run the
following command regularly:

ifdown eth1; rmmod orinoco_pci orinoco hermes; ifup eth1

OK, I found a fix for this.  Upgrading to 0.13b drivers from
http://ozlabs.org/people/dgibson/dldwd/ fixes it.  I haven't seen any lockups
since then, and the README suggests that 0.13 fixes at least on known reason for
the lockup.

I'm also seeing this problem on my IBM Thinkpad T30 which has the same wireless
chipset and uses the same driver.

The problem occurs under Red Hat Linux 8.0 as well as Phoebe 8.0.94
