What are collisions in this context?
Traditional ethernet collisions aren't possible on modern hardware,
since there's never more than one output writing to each twisted-pair.
Even though all modern NICs will happily do full-duplex operation when
connected via a switch, people still use hubs rather than switches,
sometimes.... :-) You can still get ethernet collisions on a hub.
In theory it is also possible to have collisions using a switch when the
switches switching backplane is flooded.
