I have a several SK-9872s that do not work reliably with skge but work 
fine with sklin.  The SK-9872 is a dual port card.  Doing the following 
causes a hard lock:

modprobe bonding miimon=100 mode=active-backup
modprobe skge
ifup bond0
ifdown bond0

This happens with every version of skge I've tested, including whatever is 
in 2.6.22.  /etc/network/interfaces contains:

iface bond0 inet static

         up ifenslave bond0 eth0 eth1
         down ifenslave -d bond0 eth0 eth1
