You are right. Driver on website does not have the fix yet. It's still in
our internal tree.
We will submit patch to netdev either later today or tomorrow morning.

Not really - it's not my system and I'd need to monkey around and generate
a diff which I then cannot test.

The driver you have there (REL_2.0.14.5152_LX.tar.gz) doesn't actually
appear to fix the bug:

int s2io_open(struct net_device *dev)
	nic_t *sp = dev->priv;
	int err = 0;

	 * Make sure you have link off by default every time
	 * Nic is initialized
	sp->last_link_state = 0;

	/* Initialize H/W and enable interrupts */
	err = s2io_card_up(sp);
	if (err) {
		DBG_PRINT(ERR_DBG, "%s: H/W initialization failed\n",
		if (err == -ENODEV)
			goto hw_init_failed;
			goto hw_enable_failed;

	/* Store the values of the MSIX table in the nic_t structure */

	/* After proper initialization of H/W, register ISR */
	if (sp->intr_type == MSI) {
		err = request_irq((int) sp->pdev->irq, s2io_msi_handle,
			SA_SHIRQ, sp->name, dev);

It's still calling request_irq() _after_ "enable interrupts".
