ummm never mind, I finally managed to sort out the situation and it
wasn't a NIC driver issue at all, in spite of appearances -- my guess
is some rather subtle failure in link negotiation between the NIC and
the switch it's hooked to. Not something I can hope to understand
easily I'm afraid. Anyway, the problem is solved and debian-amd64 is
installed & running just fine on this box.
