FWIW, I've been running Michael's patch on cipe v1.5.4 (2.4.21 kernel) for
about three weeks with no problems. Six machines, with four of them handling
very high loads on a 100mbps network.
Olaf, thanks for looking into a possible 1.5.5. I'd feel better knowing that
I'm not running a self-patched version of cipe, but a released version that
is being run at other installations as well.
