I should also include John Darrow here also -- he had some part in it.

Wow.  Didn't know about the revisions until just now.  The patch works on
revision 0.  We also have a revision 1 board, which it didn't work on, but
that was a 1.4.2 kernel running 1.3.3 userland with 1.4.1 ifconfig.  Can
someone with a 83840 rev 1 please please please check to see if this patch
works for them?  (if there are any others out there)
