syslog loses messages

hrev27420 Reproduceable on computers equipped with a VIA Rhine-II ethernet card: 1) the driver's attach method clearly logs the word "Quirks" but that is not to be found in /var/log/syslog 2) no "<TRUNC>" found in syslog 3) "<DROP>" can be found but I think it's before the vr driver is being attached:
... KERN: PCI: [dom 0, bus 0] bus 0, device 0, function 0: vendor 1106, device 0258, revision 00 KERN: PCI: class_base 06, class_function 00, class_api 00 KERN: PCI: vendor 1106: VIA Technologi<DROP>KERN: . KERN: PCI: device 0258: PT880 Host Bridge KERN: PCI: info: Bridge (Host bridge) ... KERN: PCI: [dom 0, bus 0] bus 0, device 18, function 0: vendor 1106, device 3065, revision 78 KERN: PCI: class_base 02, class_function 00, class_api 00 KERN: PCI: vendor 1106: VIA Technologies, Inc.

KERN: [via_rhine] (vr) tx shutdown timeout KERN: [via_rhine] (vr) restarting ...
And as we see from the last part, the driver is up and running and must have gone through attach.
I'm pretty sure that on computers without via rhine-II the driver's probe method is called as well so one could add a dprintf("vr_probe\n") there and check if it's missing. Or try reproduce with another driver.
