Hello, list.

I finally had some time to split these patches and test them against the
latest code in svn. My two boards are in use and it is harder to test.


PCI network cards crash my kernel after few packets are sent. I've
tested at least two or three cards few months ago. I am able to
reproduce this even with the first patches I've sent.

The extracted VGA ROM does not work with the internal graphics anymore.
There is no video output. The output from dmesg is:

pci 0000:01:05.0: Invalid ROM contents

The kernel loads and the system seems to be working. I was able to log
via ssh over the internal network card. The patches are sent as separate
messages in this thread.
