bcm570x driver (GPL) hangs after short period, panics on 'ifconfig --delete'

This bug is against the haiku trunk as of Thursday, Feb 21, 2008. I am running on a Dell D600 Latitude laptop with a broadcom 570x chipset.

lspci -nn output looks like this for the broadcom:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller ![0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5705M Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:165d] (rev 01)

The driver works for a few minutes after bootup. I am able to get a dhcp lease, download firefox from bebits, etc. But after a short (<10min) period of time, the driver hangs (generally hanging terminal too if I'm trying to run wget).

Also of note is that the usb driver appears to be acting up - the usb mouse works at first, and then fails. If this appears to be related, or the root cause of the network driver hang, feel free to switch the component/summary, etc. There are quite a few messages related to that before the panic.

I have attached the serial console log up to the panic and including a stack crawl. Please let me know if more information is needed. This is quite reproducable, so I can have it back up and into the problem within minutes.

I was experiencing stability problems with this driver last week too.

Since yesterday, after recompiling latest sources, this driver seems to work. I am still able to surf the web using Seamonkey more than 30 min after booting. Something impossible before...

Things appear to be stable for me now too, at least with the network and usb drivers.

Could you check with the broadcom570x driver please ? We'd like to drop bcm570x as it's not maintained anymore.

I was not experiencing this problem. But starting with hrev28637, the broadcom570x finally works on a computer where the GPL one was already working. Previously, the broadcom570x failed to load with this message : PANIC: invalid ife->ifm_data (0xa) in mii_phy_setmedia

The bcm570x driver should be removed, as it has been replaced by the FreeBSD driver.
