I get a similar-looking message on my Dell Inspiron 8500 on 2.6.9:

        b44: eth0: BUG!  Timeout waiting for bit 80000000 of register 428 to 

This happens when UP'ing the device, both when at-the-time-of-UP'ing
already connected to some Cisco Catalyst that's configured to do only
10Mbps and no autonegotiation, as well as when not connected to anything
at all.  Not sure whether it also happens on 100Mbps or when using
autonegotiation -- can't check right now.

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401 100Base-T (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Dell: Unknown device 8127
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 32, IRQ 11
        Memory at faffe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

Hope this helps.
