Addendum to former message (I pasted the wrong thing). :
eth0: Infinite loop in interrupt, status 2011.

     These are "mostly harmless" message indicating that the driver had too
much work during
     that interrupt cycle. With a status of 0x2011 you are receiving packets
faster than they can
     be removed from the card. This should be rare or impossible in normal

     Possible problems are
          a "green" mode enabled that slows the processor down when there is
no keyboard
          some other device or device driver hogging the bus or disabling
interrupts. Check
          /proc/interrupts for excessive interrupt counts. The timer tick
interrupt should always
          be incrementing faster than the others.
