Default Forcedeth network driver crash

Hello,

My HTPC machine experienced crash in the forcedeth network driver last night. I've attached the kernel log which include register dumps and at the bottom there's boot messages for the machine, I pushed the reset button in the next morning. It looks like the networking problems didn't bring down the whole kernel and thus the system, however, a TV program was successfully recorded on the disk during the night when the network was down.

forcedeth.c of Linux 2.6.22 indicates that the driver is nowadays copyrighted by NVIDIA so perhaps someone reading this is able to forward the message to someone at the company who might be interested in this issue. Feel free to ask me for any further assistance, if needed.

System is a MSI K8N Neo Platinium motherboard with NForce 3 250b chipset. The network port on the motherboard is connected to a gigabit switch. It's running 32-bit Ubuntu Feisty with their default kernel 2.6.20-16-generic. So far I've had zero networking problems during over two years I've had these couple of machines using this same motherboard and forcedeth driver.

Thanks for reading.

Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?
Do you have a reliable means of reproducing this problem?

Yep, it's running the latest version, no updates since November 2005.

Unfortunately, no. As I said, I've had zero problems in the past, the machine has been running 24/7 for years. And now I just found the machine in state where the network driver had crashed during the night. I'm monitoring the situation in case this happens again. If the driver crashes again quickly, it's probably due to faulty hardware.

I thought to post the logs just in case the maintainer of the driver would be able to interpret the register dumps and spot the fault right away.
