[nSLUG] Happy Meal Ethernet

I found a solution on the Debian Sparc mailing list.

There is a patch to kernel source available (description of
the edit needed actually):

http://sparclinux.net/pub/patches/U1-hme-lockup.patch

When that udelay(1); line is added, and the kernel recompiled
(2.4.20 in this case), the Sparc Ultra 1 Creator machine
has a happy meal ethernet in name and function.

This is the first solution I've found that can survive an nmap 
probe and keep the ethernet connection up.
