Hallo everybody,

it looks like the current oss.sgi.com 2.4 cvs (currently 2.4.19-rc1) is 
broken on DECstations. The kernel boots on a DS 5000/150, but using
the onboard LANCE does not work. Using ifconfig gives a "SIOCSIFLAGS:
Resource temporarily not available and the kernel tells "lance: Can't get
DMA IRQ 24".

Besides the LANCE problems, everything else seems to work, although I
have not yet done extensive testing (fb, keyboard and harddisk seem to
work).

Can anyone confirm this? Any idea what is broken? I am currently rather
short on time, so going back in CVS to find the date of breakage might
need some time.

Regards,
Karsten
