Subject: [REGRESSION] 2.6.24-rc7: e1000: Detected Tx Unit Hang

After compiling v2.6.24-rc7-163-g1a1b285 (x86_64) yesterday I suddenly see this error
kernel: e1000: eth0: e1000_clean_tx_irq: Detected Tx Unit Hang
kernel:   Tx Queue             <0>
kernel:   TDH                  <a>
kernel:   TDT                  <a>
kernel:   next_to_use          <a>
kernel:   next_to_clean        <ff>
kernel: buffer_info[next_to_clean]
kernel:   time_stamp           <10002738a>
kernel:   next_to_watch        <ff>
kernel:   jiffies              <1000275b4>
kernel:   next_to_watch.status <1>

My previous kernel was v2.6.24-rc7 and with that this error did not occur. I
have also never seen it with earlier kernels.

The values for "TX Queue" and "next_to_watch.status" are constant, the
others vary.

My NIC is:
