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
revisions.

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.
