OK, I believe this is an interrupt problem. I turned on debugging and
the memory locations of the tx and rx rings look OK. THe problem is
nothing is being sent/received, the rings are full but nothing else.
I need to figure out how to mount a USB flash drive, under -CURRENT as
the Guest and Red Hat 9 as the vmware host. Then I can send the
output along. I'll look more into this tonight as my test pod is dead
without this stuff and I need to test some IPv6 stuff.
