Hi guys,

I installed Debian unstable on an old digital workstation "DEC Digital
Personal Workstation 433au" (Miata) which has an on-board tulip
network controller. I'm not really using that network controller but
an off-board intel e1000 controller. However, I found that the tulip
driver produces a lot of noise in the message log, the following
message is repated periodically and spams the whole message log:

0000:00:03.0: tulip_stop_rxtx() failed (CSR5 0xf0260000 CSR6 0xb3862002)

Do you think this is related to the fact that no cable is connected to
the network controller?

The lspci output of the hardware looks like this:
