I'm not sure this is the same bug as your bug and as far as I understand
the source the packet currently *is* retransmitted. But I don't see piles of
error messages, so retransmitting probably does not trigger the bug again.

This would be explainable if it isn't a hardware bug but "normal flow control",
as cgd suggested. Which would suggest to not log it at all (but just increase
the collision error count).
