I have exactly the same problems on my Compaq Evo N1015V using 5.3-RC1
as Russell Jackson described (watchdog timeouts, loopback test
Interesting is that I had no problems doing a ftp installation from
the three boot floppies using that NIC.
What makes the floppy kernel different from GENERIC?
I would suggest increasing severity and/or priority of this PR, since
re(4) explicitly states to support "Compaq Evo N1015v Integrated
Ethernet (8139C+)" which currently seems not to be the case.
