A few bugfixes for the natsemi driver:

* multicast hashing used the wrong polynomial
* converted to pci_dma mappings
* SMP locking updates
* added full reset into tx_timeout.

If you had problems with multicast support, please try
this patch
[against 2.4.5-ac6, but it should also apply to 2.4.5]

    From Manfred's lkml post, describing the updated patch:

    All my problems with the FA-311 card are fixed:

    * multicast hash fixed
    * suspend & resume added.
    * converted to new style pci dma mappings.

    Alan, I've tested it on both i386 and ppc with 2.4.5-ac6.
    Could you add it into the next -ac kernel?

    Jeff, I merged the MODULE_PARM_DESC from gkernel, but I
    didn't remove
    the __dev_init from eeprom_read. eeprom_read is only called
    from
    _probe1, __dev_init seems to be correct.
