For some definition of `support', yes.  The NCR driver needs some
work, though.  (I'm about to start on a complete rewrite of it.)

First of all, the driver outputs another line in this case, which
contains some fairly critical info for analyzing the problem.  It
would help a great deal if you had included it.

Secondly, old DP8390 chips have a bug where the high byte of the
packet length will get corrupted under moderate to heavy load.  The
message is just informational; the driver works around the bug.
