hi all

my apologies if this gets received twice... i originally sent a copy
of this using mutt's 'bounce' function, but i don't think that's
what i wanted to do.....

this is a bug report re: martin e1000 patch. i'm seeing some lockups
under normal traffic loads that seem to go away if i revert the
patch.  details below..


thanks
