I, btw, have used the kernel version from the CVS (except Miguel's
console changes for X) for several days now without major problems
on a Indy. But I still haven't found where all the bad packets
that my other machines spit out come from. They're pretty annoying
as they result in NFS timeouts, sometimes even lockups.
It's the sgiseeq driver, if it gets hit just right the receiver will
lock up. I had a work around that would detect the situation and dump
the rx/tx rings, then reset the card, and it would continue to work.
Put some timeout in there to do something like that, this will help
you to track down this bug which I never was able to resolve.
