Pointer for the rtl8139 regression please ?

I'm guessing it's this one:

Subject : boot failure: rtl8139: exception in interrupt routine
References :
Submitter : Stephen Clark <Stephen.Clark@xxxxxxxxxx>
Status : unknown

The poster says rtl8139, but doesn't provide more info. His lspci says "RTL8169SC", which sounds more like r8169 to me.

Yes, thanks.

The r8169 driver has been added a few bugfixes between 2.6.21-rc5 and now.
Some are related to latent, timing changes induced bugs.

Stephen, would you mind testing 2.6.21 and open a PR at
if the bug does not go away ?

Bugzilla e-mails end directly in my mailbox. l-k traffic can be temporarily
unnoticed (especially on saturday night).

Sure I'll give it a try in the next couple of days.
