	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. :)
