I have examined the AMD LANCE chips in each of the three 3/60's that I own.
Here's what I have: AMD 7990PC/70  8733DP (c) 1985 AMD 7990PC/70  8804FP (c) 1985 AMD 7990PC  824BPCE (c) 1987

Which revisions are these chips (i.e. do I have the bug)? Ideally, if one
or more of these do not have the problem, I'd like to shut off that bug
handling code in the kernel for those machine(s).
