A kernel of 10/6/1997 causes numerous packets with bad CRCs to be sent
(as seen from a machine with an older driver). The same hardware with
a 29/5/97 kernel does not have this problem. The only other change
between kernels was the inclusion of a soundblaster driver in the
newer one (no irq conflict). de chip is: de0: 21140A [10-100Mb/s]
pass 2.0. The cards are run at 100baseTX <full-duplex>.
I'm really hoping that this is simply mirroring what everyone else is
seeing, otherwise it gets a bit trickier.
Run a new kernel.
Probably go back to the pre-970603 driver, if I still had source. :)
