A 16-bit PCMCIA card can only transfer about 2 MB/sec over the PCMCIA
bus.  So yes, it is a fact of life that you'll drop packets on a
100baseT (10 MB/sec) network connection.

We may want to make this problem silent, since there isn't anything to
be done about it, and generating thousands of kernel messages isn't
very productive.
