This will update the following files:

drivers/net/via-rhine.c | 3 +++

The via-rhine fix is already in the stable queue. But the sis900 oops
fix does not apply to the stable tree. It relies on a few intermediate
patches. Appears to still be an issue for the older version which is in
2.6.11. Here's a stab at a backport. Would you like to review/validate
or drop this one?

The backport looks correct to me, though it would be nice to get a via-rhine owner to ACK the patch before it goes in...

OK, thanks. ITYM sis900 maintainer, is that still Ollie Lho as listed in
MAINTAINERS (that's looking old)?

I have been acting maintainer for more than a year now, and I'm completely fine with the patch.

A lot of time ago (2.6.6) I proposed a patch to update MAINTAINERS, but Jeff said he wanted to wait some time. I don't know if such change is now possible/wanted.
AFAIK Ollie's email address bounces.
