Might be a bug in the e100 driver, might not be.

I assume this is the

        BUG_ON(skb->list != NULL);

in __kfree_skb(), although the line number is off-by-one, and the
.__kfree_skb+0x188/0x240 would tend to contradict that.  Anton, can you
help work out where we went splat please?

tx timeouts are fairly rare events, so this might not be a recently-added
bug.

Do we know if it is repeatable?
