I get the following boot messages, should I worry?

<4>hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hda: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }

Continuous, or only once, during boot? The latest, some people seems to get similar messages. Perhaps not important, the kernel trying something. If it then says dma dissabled, then there is a problem. If you get more, yes, worry.
Phil, I do not want to alarm you but, Carlos, Is it possible these boot messages are coming from smartctl? That the drive may actually be failing?

I also get the following:-
SIOCADDRT: Network is down
SIOCADDRT: Network is down
Network cable not plugged in or faulty, NIC still working? Otherwise as Carlos says, Dunno
