We keep better track of ethernet devices by tying physical PCI cards
to their hardware address; this is done with ethtool. Apparently
something in kudzu's quick 'load module; query with ethtool ; query
for hardware address' cycle on 3c59x makes the driver/card very
upset. It's not clear at all *why* this is happening, though.
