It's completely not acceptable to run when the EEPROM checksum fails - you might even be running with the wrong MAC address, or worse. Lets fix this the right way instead.
A printk which helps the user to understand all this saga would be very nice.

And if someone who understands all of these details could put a note
in the thinkwiki (say, here:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Ethernet_Controllers#Intel_Gigabit_.2810.2F100.2F1000.29)
it would be greatly appreciated.

why don't I do that :)


Andrew: I'm contemplating that printk...
