Anyone have any ideas on this one?

The machine in question is a dual Athlon with a custom SMP kernel config 
which can be found at . Reverting to 
GENERIC does _not_ fix the problem. The interface in question is an 
nge-compatible 64-bit Linksys card detected as:

nge0 at pci0:8:0:  class=0x020000 card=0x10641737 chip=0x0022100b rev=0x00 
     vendor   = 'National Semiconductor'
     device   = 'DP83820/1 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter'
     class    = network
     subclass = ethernet

I've also noticed data corruption in the form of failed CRCs (And hence 
dropped SSH connections) while transferring large amounts of data via SSH 
over gige to a machine on its subnet. These problems started occuring 
after the giant-less networking megacommit. Older kernels check out 
without any such issues.

Additional information on the system can be found online:
pciconf -vl:
kernel config:
old dmesg (Can be updated):
