I should add that if I test the same kernel version (v3.13.3 compiled for i686) on a similar machine of the same vintage, there is not a problem.  When I looked into the `lspci -v` output on the machine that has the problems, I found that it seems to be related to the skge driver as shown below; the similar machine that does not have the problem is using the forcedeth driver so I am hypothesizing that the error is with the skge driver.
