Re: [PATCH 1/1] via-rhine: Fix hanging with high CPU load on low-end broads.

Looks like the hardware isn't really disabling interrupts correctly to support
NAPI. NAPI is supposed to be friendly and under load the work should move to
ksoftirqd. I suspect the IRQ management in this driver is borked.
There is some stupid spin loops in the IRQ handler that happen when looking for
Tx IRQ. I would run with debug set  and see if this is triggering.
