I would ask: why 400msec? 8)
All the drivers use much larger values. 5 seconds is good one.
Actually, I changed this by _your_ advice? Do you remember? 8)
BTW it really helped to avoid watchdog, when card had some spurious stalls
due to excessive collisions or those link problems.

Is 3com ppp driver? 8) No? Then you can reuse this value
for any other purposes.
All this debugging statistics should be deteted. I removed it from acenic,
for example. It was interesting only at the first stage.
