[Bug 31857] Re: r818x driver freezes randomly

I can confirm this bug under both Edgy and Feisty (stock kernels).

I am using a wireless card with a Realtek 8225 front-end chip.  I have
found that the system freezes ONLY when I am SENDING lots of data, NEVER
when receiving.  For example, if I throttle a file upload to 10 kB/s, it
will continue to work indefinitely, but if I allow it to run at full
speed the system will normally crash in a few seconds.

Who is maintaining this driver?  I emailed the maintainer listed in the
log files several months ago, but never received a response...  I would
like to try to fix this problem myself, but haven't made much headway.
There's no indication in the system logs of anything going wrong before
it crashes.
