Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-amd64-generic

Hi there,

On Feisty/AMD64 the "prism54pci" (with  isl3890) module produces problems
- on Removing kernel module: kernel panic
- After long time heavy network load (bittorrent, but not websurfing) kernel panic
- Sometimes after long time, strange disconnection from AP. Reconnection works, but it won't take long until next disconnection. /var/log/messages is full of 
May 16 12:29:19 shodan kernel: [ 7457.952947] wiphy0: tx overflow.
when this happens.

uname -a
Linux shodan 2.6.20-15-generic #2 SMP Sun Apr 15 06:17:24 UTC 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux

WLAN Adapter (according to lspci)
01:00.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette]/ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] 
It's a "T-Sinus 154pcicard", labeled from german ISP.

There are several other Bugs affecting prism54 in Launchpad, but they
are all USB or PCMCIA. In contrast to Bug #108602 the kernel doesn't
report "Kernel BUG" (or does this only happens with debug kernels?)
