That worked well, thanks a lot! I now get consistent 100Mbps full
duplex and the TX packet carrier errors are gone. 

As a bonus, the card comes up directly without need for an
additional "ifconfig eth0 down up" or setting promiscous mode. Currently I
think that it sometimes failes to come up, but I need to observe the
situation a little longer. 

Cheers, Stefan
