None Not much I can do

The unfortunate problem with the Xircom tulip stuff is that Donald
doesn't want to support these cards at all (which is not that
unreasonable a position; given the number of problems reported with
these cards, I'm not too happy about them either).  And there really
is no maintainer for these patches: a few people have contributed
patches, but there seem to be several card variants floating around
and no one has tried to characterize the differences between these

There is not much I can do to help for problems that are in the tulip
driver.  I am not really familiar with the tulip chipsets... and do
not have any of these Xircom cards... and before anyone offers to send
me one, I probably wouldn't be too excited about getting more involved
in this anyway.
