Hi there!
I'm seeing the same problem with 8139cp (everithing seems fine, mii-tool
works, but only seldom packets are received from the device). Last good
kernel for me was 2.6.11-bk4. I tried pci=routeirq on 2.6.12, but made
no difference. Here's lscpi output (on 2.6.11-bk4).

Attached dmesg for a working (2.6.11bk4) and a non working kernel

Kind regards,
Roberto Oppedisano

PS: attached dmesg shows a tainted kernel; the problem is exactly the
same also with a vanilla kernel (whitout ever loading slamr module).
