XP is probably leaving the NIC in some kind of inconsistent state,
causing the diagnostic error at boot.  Fixing that will probably
require detailed knowledge of the hardware, but it still should not
panic in the error path, and this part should be easier to fix since
it's probably just a bad assumption about lock state.

Can you submit a PR about this, including the below URLs?
