I don't see this error untill I've run ping -f for around 6-8 hours.
Then, I see them repeatedly. As mentioned previously, I put in
code to do a card reset when I see 3 in a row. My reset logic
caused a panic. I would be interested if you can suggest a better
reset logic. I also put in some print statements to print out the
tx/rx pkts and some other stats to see if it always resets after
the same number of packets...

I see this same problem on an orinoco silver card in my laptop.
However, it only prints this error when talking to an XI-825 card
on my strongarm computer. This may be a fluke, but when I
uncommented the hermes_read_regn line below, I saw fewer
errors on the strongarm.....
static void __orinoco_ev_tx(struct orinoco_private *priv, hermes_t *hw)
struct net_device *dev = &priv->ndev;
struct net_device_stats *stats = &priv->stats;
u16 fid = hermes_read_regn(hw, TXCOMPLFID);
/* printk("%s: Transmit completed (FID=%04X)\n", priv->ndev.name, fid); */
hermes_write_regn(hw, TXCOMPLFID, DUMMY_FID);
