I believe that this changes in 3c59x made my squeeze sytem unusuable
since yesterdays upgrade from 18.104.22.168-15 to -18. I use a 3com card with
this driver for years, and after booting the new kernel my system
completely freezed reproducable after seconds online on the net.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to find the deb of -15 anymore, and I got
the same problen with another 3com card, so I had to
change the network card to a DLink model and now everything workes fine.
There were absolutely nothing in the logs, machine feezed completely, no
keyboard response, so no SysReq worked, only power button saved me.
