DEC-Tulip compatible 10/100 Ethernet (rev 10)
Subsystem: Davicom Semiconductor, Inc. 21x4x DEC-Tulip compatible
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
I/O ports at ec00 [size=128]
Memory at f7fff000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128]
Expansion ROM at f7f80000 [disabled] [size=256K]
Capabilities:  Power Management version 1
Kernel driver in use: dmfe
in my box. The card/driver seems to work just fine, however it spams
my /var/log/messages with

a couple of times a second.
The "adress" seems to correspond with where the memory is located.
Any pointers as to what I can do to mute the bugger?
You could try "ethtool -s eth0 msglvl 0x0" and hope that this helps, but
that's pure luck :-)
I have tried to use the tulip driver, but alas ref bnc
does not work.
kernel in use
embla:~ # uname -rvm
3.0.0-rc6-2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 6 22:58:01 UTC 2011 (56e99da)
That's of course very old :-)
But the code did not change since then...
I did look into the kernel source and the output in question is a
pr_debug(). Documentation/dynamic-debug-howto.txt says something about
pr_debug() and how to control it, but I did not try it yet.
Maybe reading up on /usr/src/linux/Documentation/dynamic-debug-howto.txt
will be helpful...
Good luck :-)
