CF 8385 card: status report

My driver is now in a state where I can

* send commands to the firmware
* receive responses from the firmware
* scan for APs
* associate with an AP without encryption
* associate to an AP with WEP
* partly (!) receive packets
* partly (!) transmit packets

Some help would be useful :-)

Receiving packets
When I run "tshart -i eth1 -V", I seem to get complete packets, 
for example IPPP broadcasts from my cups daemon, or Cisco Router 
Discovery from my Cisco AP1231 I'm connected to.

However, in sylog I see entries like

        NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08

What does this mean?

Sending packets
I think packets are correctly sent (they are at least downloaded 
to the card). However, the kernel thinks otherwise. I see 
entries like

        NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth1: transmit timed out

So somehow there must be a way how I tell the kernel that I sent 
something successfully. But how?
