Hi Beniamino,

I will investigate. Could you please :

- Load the module
- Show me the output of lsmod
- Use your ethernet a bit
- Try to unload the module
- If your board did not freeze or if your kernel did not panic , show
me your dmesg (if it is impossible show me the dmesg before unloading
the module)

Perhaps, we could continue this discussion in private (by email or
IRC). What do you think ?

I will investigate this evening and tomorrow. Thanks for your feedbacks .
