Without looking at any of your code, I would kindly like to ask you not
to look at the Linux driver for eexpress too much - it's severely broken
and has all kinds of timing problems that can crash boxes at predictable
moments (some boxes crash when you ifconfig, some crash when you run
tcpdump [probably on the switch to PROMISC]). Slower boxes seem to work
