tried some more... 3x ping -f from two fast sources causes my
system with VT6105M to crash within seconds. 3x ping -f from a single
source causes it to crash in ~30 seconds.

on a hunch I tried switching over to copying buffers (i.e. adding
the VR_Q_NEEDALIGN quirk that's needed for older ICs) but no
difference there.

on another hunch, I tried a snapshot kernel from June 30th
(pre gcc 4). I haven't been able to crash it yet...
