indigo2 seeq8003 problems
After recently upgrading to Lenny the ethernet card on my r4k based indigo2 has stopped working. The symptoms are as if the network cable was not present - tried changing the cable and using different ports on the switch. Nothing seems to get 'out'. Not sure if I can turn more debugging on. Pinging and arping'ing the machine from outside fail.
I've tried IP22 variants of linux kernel 2.6.26-2 and 2.6.29-4 (from unstable).
The network card is brought up with (from dmesg):
[17179570.240000] eth0 (): not using net_device_ops yet
[17179570.304000] eth0: SGI Seeq8003 08:00:69:08:43:b2
and when i try to do dhcp or arping I get (the machine has a static address normally):

The latter error seems to be ipv6 related, not sure if I can disable ipv6 loading at boot time (not sure if it would help).
I'm able to move new deb's/sources on to it via minicom/zmodem but communications with the outside world is otherwise limited.
Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
