The KSEG1() is indeed what I did, however the driver, as I tried to
describe, starts to loose synchronization on buffer at some point and
just waits quietly... Even with all the DEBUG and mental effort switched
on I can't get the reason why this happens...

By the way, which version of the driver are you talking about? Mine
doesn't have any ifdef on anything... besides MODULE of course:-)

Mine is:

static const char *version =
"rtl8139.c:v1.07 5/6/99 Donald Becker";
