[Aside: I think I sent a message about ethernet configuration
with a subject line from an X configuration problem.  My prior
message on the subject was a bug report about a non-bug.  Third
strike and I'm out, but by jove I think I've got it.]

Turns out I've got a buslogic 946C and a 32 bit lance card 
trying to share IRQ 11.  I think this is a kernel problem.
Anyone know the workaround?

It turned out that Linux has two incompatible methods of sharing
interrupts.  The SCSI drivers tend to use one method and the
Ethernet drivers tend to use the other method.  Because of this
(and I don't think it has changed) the SCSI card and Ethernet
card can't share interrupts.
