Looking at the code around this message, it appears that least
over/under-length, framing and CRC errors (and maybe others) can trigger
this.  A faulty cable could certainly result in these sorts of errors,
most likely CRC errors.

"grep -r . /sys/class/net/eth0/statistics/" will show you detailed error
statistics for eth0.
