I am in need of adding driver support for the Socket Rugged CF

I'm guessing that  the problem is only in a recent revision (the L
revision?) of the chip since I don't see such a workaround in the
standard axnet_cs.c driver.

Has anyone done this workaround? Any other comments or suggestions?
Otherwise, I'll try to implement these changes and submit a patch.

Here's a patch (against 2.6.15) that works with the Socket Rugged CF
10/100 Card. Comments welcome.
