Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.12-6
Severity: important

When trying to bring up a firewire interface on a G5 running a
2.6.12-1-powerpc64 (well, a fixed one, see 323724), i get the following

$ ifup eth1
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable
Failed to bring up eth1.

$ tail -n1 /var/log/syslog
Sep 20 23:08:35 localhost kernel: eth1394: eth1: Could not allocate isochronous receive context for the broadcast channel

$ ifconfig eth1
eth1      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-0A-95-FF-FE-BE-FE-28-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

i have the following in /etc/network/interfaces

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static

the same configuration works nicely on an ibook running 2.6.12-1-powerpc.
i can reproduce the bug on 2.6.11-power4-smp.

cheers, piem
