Are you sure this is the same problem as what's being discussed
here?  If you revert to a previous kernel or em driver, does the
problem (link up/down) go away?  Are you sure you don't actually
have a flaky cable or RJ45 connector?  What does the switch your
NIC is connected to say? (does it show link going up and down)

I feel horrible for both Scott and Jack -- I think there's tons
of people coming out of the woodwork with "ME TOO" comments who
may in fact be suffering from other problems, and are looking for
a scapegoat thread.
