System: NetBSD daffy-duck.putnam 1.4U NetBSD 1.4U (DAFFY-DUCK) #40: Tue Mar 14 15:46:58 EST 2000 nathanw@daffy-duck.putnam:/u1/nbsd/src/sys/arch/alpha/compile/DAFFY-DUCK alpha

The aue driver, driving a LinkSys EtherFast 10/100 USB network adapter,
attached via a ohci on an pc164-based Alpha, can recieve packets on the
network (as seen by tcpdump) but fails to transmit them; other machines
on the wire see no data.

The driver repeatedly spews the following block of error messages while
trying to transmit:

aue0: watchdog timeout
ohci_close_pipe: pipe not empty sed=0xfffffc0000e54760 hd=0x40eb6710 tl=0x40eb6620 pipe=0xfffffe0000044800, std=0x0
ohci_close_pipe: pipe still not empty
usb_block_allocmem: in interrupt context, size=4096
usb_block_allocmem: in interrupt context, size=4096

Put ohci card in pc164, attach Linksys to ohci, bring up interface
and try to ping another host (or reply to pings from another host).
