Follow-up Comment #5:

Sergio: I'm not entirely sure that it's the `most correct' fix, since
eth_addr is the device's MAC address and this is only six bytes long.  But
eight bytes are read form the card and the checksum is calculated using those
eight bytes and I don't have a card to investigate further and in the recent
Linux-2.6 kernel still eight bytes are read and the patch is at least
perfectly safe, etc.

I put in Sergio's patch.

        * linux/src/drivers/net/apricot.c (apricot_probe): Increase eth_addr
        size to 8 so we do not trash the stack when reading from the io
