	I am using denk's linuxppc-2.4.20 . I am getting this problem of
"transmit timed out" on FCC in MPC8260 as well as MPC8247. It seems to
be a case of late collision. I checked out earlier posts similar to this
also. The problem occurs if I attempt to transfer large files and is not
seen on all systems.

	The messages on console are given below. I am seeing the
same 5th BD reporting LC. FCC_PSMR_LPB is already set in
arch/ppc/8260_io/fcc_enet.c .

	Can the 8247 errata CPM119 or some other errata be the cause ? What is
the solution for this ?
