Bug#287933: kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc: [prep] upping the network interface (de4x5DecChip 21140 based) freezes the kernel.

Package: kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

As the subject says, the motorola powerstack (utah motherboard) has an onboard
decchip 21140 (pci-id 1011:0009), and modprobing the de4x5 module works fine,
but as soon as we access the interface, it freezes the kernel. It was reported
that the same happens with an intel based network card.

A 2.4.12 suse kernel install currently present on the machine doesn't exhibit
this problem.
