 Are you sure?  As best I can tell from looking at dev/ic/tulipvar.h,
 the code in question does NOT look like it was ever patched as described
 in the article.
 Maybe it was patched, and then later unpatched after problems were seen.
 My cabling is fine, AFAIK.
 I'll probably sidestep this issue for the time being by changing to a
 different (non-Tulip) NIC.
